2012 First Trillium
At this point I am not sure what trillium this is. This is a learn as you go blog.
Relict Trillium trillium reliquum is one of the earliest to bloom in Georgia according to the Gulf South Research Corporation http://www.goldendelighthoney.com/tes/TRRE6/trre_text.html.
Maybe it is a Confederate Wakerobin;
It would be interesting to go back in a week or two and check what color the flower is and how it has changed. Maybe it would be easier to identify.
I found this Trillium along the trail and just below Amicalola Falls at Amicalola State Park, Georgia.
Here is a site of a friend of mine, Terry Guthrie. Terry is a photographer and likes to photograph nature. You will find Trillium photos here, as well as, other wildflowers.http://www.mostlynature-photo.com/Flowers/Wild-FlowersPlants/3016236_BxSqwG/889590963_yLU5u#!i=552044155&k=ou3Sy
