Trillium flowers are usually strongly scented, and their common names often indicate their fragrance. We have Little Sweet Betsy, Stinking Benjamin, and Wet Dog Trillium, for example — surely they are attracting various insect pollinators. One Trillium well worth bending down for a good sniff is Trillium luteum, or Yellow Trillium. This lovely flower has a wonderful lemony scent. We have yet to discover Trillium luteum growing on the Domain. Maybe that’s why it seems so special when we do come across it. This spring, I saw several at Rock Island State Park, and earlier this week I snapped this one in the Smokies — every bit as pretty as it smells!
