Admire From Afar
Updated: May 15, 2018
If you walk the low lying areas of the Viviry Watershed at this time of year, you’ll see many trilliums. Most are white, but you might also see a less common species known as the Red Trillium.
When you see one of these plants, admire its beauty from a distance. The Red Trillium is pollinated by flies and not bees. To attract flies, it emits a foul smelling scent similar to rotting meat.
Here is a Red Trillium photographed today at Driscoll-Naylor.
