the dominant plant in a shallow pool
No black "lashes", but otherwise identical to the photo in Wagner's "Caterpillars of Eastern North America".
Growing in a sunny & dry "waste" area. Flowers are about 1cm high. Grass-like leaves.
note the lack of threadlike tips on bracts
in damp leaf duff above waterfall.
Common on dry forested slope above Little Beaver Creek.
I guess this is at the hairiest end of the spectrum for this species. I have never seen this plant appear so white-woolly before; it looked like a totally different species to me.
Common on dry wooded slope above Little Beaver Creek. All plants were densely hairy here.
Abundant along small stream in gorge.
This place must be where all the wake-robins go when they die: a true trillium heaven; I have never seen so many of these in one place.
This one in particular was so large I had to touch it-- it's not real unless you touch it...
Call it proof.
growing in gravel along roadside with chickweed and purple dead nettle. So, a "weed" by association...
Isolated patch along roadside. See photo of old flower stalks. I think this ID is good?
These flowers were being diligently pollinated by a group of midges (or mosquitoes?). Quite fun to watch!
