Trillium in Bloom this week

Trillium Explosion Champion, PA!

It’s a good thing! Trilliums are beautiful spring flowers that return year after year. We have a treasured bed that runs along the Indian Creek Valley Trail (ICV Trail) in Champion.  This is one of the old rail road passages that have been turned into a hiking biking trail. Go to destination 25 on our MAP for the bed location.

 The white ones are by far the overwhelming majority and cover several hillsides. If you look carefully you will be able to find pink and deep maroon flowers scattered amongst the white. You do not have to leave the trail to find all three specimens.  

 Wikipedia shares the plant details including some very interesting facts! A few include, “Trillium seeds are spread by ants and mice! Picking Trillium for its flower can SERIOUSLY INJURE the plant.” Make sure you bring your camera along!

 Living in the Laurel Highlands allows us (and YOU) to take advantage of the best that Mother Nature has to offer. Take a walk soon as their bloom time is short. Keep your eyes open for the yellow trout lilies too! ENJOY!
