    But yeah, that's a native...
    There's a couple of species but I believe that's Trillium Erectum...


    All kidding aside, is that a current photo? If so, where and when?
    Today, in the woods here, the trillium have a set of leaves just two or three inches off the ground. Weeks from blooming...

    Nope, I just thought that you were the only member with a broad knowledge base that could answer all the questions of flora and fauna in our region.

    Yes, that is a Red Trillium and the photo was taken on Saturday along a WTS in the Pa Pocono area. There were quite a few of that size on the north slope facing south on the stream ravine. The Trout-Lilys were also present, along with emerging fiddleheads.

    The fishing was also good for WILD brown trout on gaudy dry flies.

    You're an observant and perceptive guy...
    Of course, I knew that's what you meant...


    We've got the Trout Lillies blooming and the ferns popping out...
    but the Trillium is barely started.

    Not only is it a stocked fish, but I would guarantee the origin to be Musky Trout Hatchery. Vern's browns are the most recognizable hatchery fish I have ever seen. Not only do they lack red spots, but they often show touching black spots that appear more like a line than two spots close together. Sort of like you would see on some tiger trout which he also raises at that hatchery (at their 2nd facility).

    Both my white and purple trilliums are blooming and were when I left NJ for my upper D trip last Tuesday. I stole my purples from my old hunting camp in Potter, PA. The whites just popped up on their own in my natives garden which is fenced from deer.

    Sad, but true. I remember when GST was the baby site to big brother NEFF.....now it's all about trout magnets and stocked rainbows.
