Today’s post features some macro photographs of mature Trillium wildflowers, captured recently along the Natural Bridge Trail of Ha Ha Tonka State Park (in the Missouri Ozarks).
Trillium, or “Wake Robin” are wildflowers that grow in spring in many of Missouri’s woodlands. Earlier, I featured some young plants … today’s post features some mature plants, in bloom:
Trillium wildflowers feature a single flower per plant, arising stemless from a whorl of 3 leaves. The flower colors can vary, but most of the area trilliums that I have found are a maroon-red color.
Coming up … more Missouri spring wildflowers.
