Trilliums in the wild in Toronto area


I was wondering if anybody knows where we might see trilliums in the Toronto area. Parks?



The beautiful white trillium has been Ontario’s provincial flower since 1937.  This lovely spring ephemeral is not so easy to find in the Toronto area, but here is a blog entry from a few years ago that describes where to find them in High Park:

Another article describes a walk through Lambton Woods, by the Lower Humber River near Dundas St. W. and Royal York Rd., in search of the red trillium:

If you are interested in a day-long excursion outside the city, there are conservation areas and provincial parks within a two-hour range of Toronto where trilliums may certainly be seen.  Awenda Provincial Park, for instance, has some lovely hikes where you can find trilliums in abundance in May:
