|| YELLOW ANTHER TROUT LILY
A large stand of Trout Lily's (Erythonium americanum) can be seen on the Wildflower Trail. Near the trail entrance, the whole hillside is covered with Trout Lily colonies in mid March. The plant gets the common name "Trout Lily" from the spotted pattern on the leaves, which look like the pattern on a trout fish. The Trout Lily grows in most of the eastern part of the United States.
Two variations of Trout Lily are present on the Wildflower Trail, yellow stamens and brown stamens.
