It’s trillium week here at William Britten Photography in Gatlinburg, TN.
First up is the common White Trillium (Trillium grandiflorum). This is the species that you will see carpeting the hillsides along the Newfound Gap Road or along the Cove Hardwoods Nature Trail in the Chimneys Picnic Area in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The white bloom may fade to pink as the flower ages, as seen in the picture to the left.
White Trillium is a big, showy variety that can grow up to 18 inches high. It grows in large communities, and is easy to spot populating moist hillsides of the Smokies.
Please stop in and visit me to see the complete display of Smoky Mountain Photography at the William Britten Gallery in Gatlinburg, TN.
