Trillium and the Trillium Family

I am Spock, a dealer in Kevas and Trillium.

    - Gene L. Coon, Errand of Mercy

Consider the Lilies of the field, how they toil not, neither do they spin, And yet I say unto you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

    - Matthew 6:28b-29

This genus is a very interesting one.  Under great simplicity and conformity of habit, 3 leaves at the summit of a stem, supporting one solitary terminal flower, it contains and conceals many species."

     - Stephen Elliott, A Sketch of the Botany of South Carolina and Georgia p.430
