Black Trillium

Happy May Day! If April showers bring May flowers, then I feel it is only appropriate to post a May flower on May Day!

I planted 10 white trillium bulbs and 6 black trillium bulbs 2 years ago. Last year I didn't get any blooms. This year, starting almost a month ago, I got over a dozen white blooms. This week, the black ones have started to also bloom. I am up to 4 so far, with a few that have not opened to go. So exciting, as trilliums are my favorite, and having them in my own yard is awesome. I especially love these black ones, as they are something I have never seen before!
