The Awesome Trillium Field in full bloom for Wintergreens Wildflower Symposium

The Wintergreen Nature Center also works to conserve the wild fauna and flowers of the mountains. One of its great successes is this amazing “Trillium field.” This is an absolute treasure every spring. These amazing plants only bloom after 7 years and have been lovingly  relocated from building sites and such by the nature center staff. In addition, volunteers and residents alike help in this amazing conservation process.

Is it just about flowers?
