Some trilliums are quite tough and are not. This one is of a tough variety. I found it growing along the road above the spring house at Black Rock Mountain State Park. This is an area where trilliums and a lot of other wildflowers grow near the Spring House. There is a trail that meanders thru the bed of flowers with signs along it saying not to leave the trail in this sensitive area. Last year after the tornados downed trees someone came in with heavy tracked equipment to remove the fallen trees. There did not seem to be much care in the clean up. Just my opinion on the matter. This year I shall return to see how much damage was really done in this sensitive area. I am hoping many of these tough wildflowers will return in spite of the treatment they endured.
