Trillium is a Lily

Trilliums are members of the Lili Family. Figured I would get this out of the way because at this point it is not all that interesting to me. I am sure it will be later. Consider the Persistent Trillium.
Here is how the USDA presents the classification of the Persistent Trillium, as well as, others in the plant kingdom.
