Some things evoke the Pacific Northwest like rainy days, new age hippies, Subarus, local food, and this little gem, trillium. They are deceptively delicate, you would think that their less refined form would indicate a certain level of hardiness but pick a flower and you could quite possibly kill the plant. Those that survive may take multiple seasons to recover. There is nothing quite like a hike through maples and evergreens, the sweet smell of pine and decaying leaves hidden under a carpet of ferns dotted with the bright white of the trilliums.
