The beautiful giant wakerobin (Trillium chloropetalum) is a perennial plant native to California, usually found thriving among redwood or other forests. It grows locally, as well as throughout the coastal ranges of California and the Sierra Nevada foothills. The plant tends to form in clumps under shaded areas while the leaves grow in whorls of three, hence the name trillium. When it flowers in the spring, its egg-shaped petals range in color from dark red to white and emit a rose-like scent. Don’t let that lure you in though - it is highly toxic!
