Nodding Trillium

Nodding Trillium by Lorraine Anderson

Wildflowers June 13-16, 2002

Found blooming in Cook County by Erik Anderson and Lorraine Anderson (Be sure to check out the past reports linked at the right as well!)

This is an archive of wildflowers found during the Summer in Northeastern Minnesota.  Click here to see the most recent wildflower report.

The family took a nice weekend trip to Lake McFarland bordering John Lakes (Entry #69) and Pine Lake (Entry #68). The Arrowhead Trail was yellow with dandelions and marsh marigolds.  The woods were white with a large number of bunchberry and strawberry blossoms.  We had a lot of rain, but some beautiful weather as well.  The seasonal brooks were rushing, and along one of them we found quite a few nodding trillium.

Bunchberry - Cornus canadensis
