I found this trillium while hiking. don't pick trillium, please. they are slow growing flowers. leave them for the next people

@interneteh besides that, trillium roots, given the chance, can spread and form colonies of plants. So please don't interrupt nature at work!

@interneteh there's not much wind in the forest floors where trillium usually grow. So trillium attract ants to move seeds for them. They produce seeds that smell like dead insects to ants. the confused ants carry the seeds back to their nests, where trillium may one day take root.

@interneteh I have a bunch of trilliums planted in leaf litter and twigs in my front yard

I hope they grow into a strong colony someday

@interneteh thank you i didnt know this!

i was sketching them the other day, and tiptoed around them
