Trillium

Just west of Arpin, Wisconsin is Powers Bluff Maple Woods State Natural Area. Early in the spring, prior to the maple trees leafing out, an amazing display of spring flowers can be found on the forest floor. A sweeping carpet of trillium is especially impressive.  Trillium gets its name in part due to it’s leaves, petals and sepals occurring in threes. To many, trillium blooming in the spring is also a reminder of Easter and the Trinity.
