Trillium is an ancient woodland plant. The name Trillium supposedly derives from the Latin word 'trilix' that means ‘triple’ and reflects that fact that almost all the parts of this plant exist in a triple quantity. The three broadly-rounded leaves, three long narrow sepals and three broad petals are typical of this plant. The white Trillium is a floral emblem of the Canadian province Ontario. This white flower is associated with peace and hope. Trilliums are protected officially and by the folk belief that if you pick the bloom, the plant will not flower for seven years. Trilliums however can be folded from paper so there is no need to take them from the wild.
