Forest flowers have a certain draw to them. For me, they’re a shade more elegant and fanciful than many of the wildflowers you find carpeting open meadows. And this one in particular reminds me that we’re in the process of raising trilliums in our own Native Plant Garden. It hasn’t reopened yet, but come 2013 you’ll want to be here at the NYBG for the unveiling. —MN
