Trillium, colorful wildflower (genus Trillium) of North American woodlands and eastern Asia. A member of the lily family, trilliums have 3 sepals, petals, and leaves on each stem. They bloom in early spring, and are also called wake-robins because their flowers appear at the same time robins return north. Colors of the more than 40 varieties include white, pink, dark red, yellow, green, or a painted variety.
