Wildflowers abound in the Smoky Mountains, as well as on my property. Trout Lilies have grown here for years, but this is the first time I’ve notice them when they bloom.

Purple violets are common, but I still let them grow anywhere except in the garden spaces.

Very few on my property are actually yellow.

Most numerous of all are these white violets. They cover the bank behind my garage.

Bloodroot is another pretty wildflower that pops up here and there.

These yellow trillium were given to me by a friend in Tennessee. They have flourished here, and have been shared with many neighbors. The yellow blossom has a lovely lemon scent.

They grow wild in this area also.

  1. I went up near max patch two weekends ago and saw some really great wild trillum patches. At the lower elevations I saw plenty of ‘white’ trillium, which I believe is called ‘Trillium simile’ or ‘Sweet White Trillium’, http://utc.usu.edu/factsheets/trillium/trillium_simile/trillium_simile.htm .
    At higher elevations I saw trillium with a burgundy color, called ‘Trillium erectum/Red Trillium’ – http://utc.usu.edu/factsheets/trillium/trillium_erectum/trillium_erectum.htm
