In my previous post about snow trilliums, I had lamented this year’s demise of them due to bitter frost after a period of warm days, and documented my claim with a a picture of a plant that looked to me like a very dead trillium. Not so, as a good friend has pointed out. The dead plant was in fact a hepatica, and is back, still with brown leaves, but also with nice little white flowers. Up close:
And, even better, the snow trilliums I had taken for dead, are out, too.
A little curiosity today was a small patch of three snow trilliums that had pink veins. Pretty.
