I found this plant growing amoung some ferns along a creek, can't figure out what it is. I live in No. Ca. at about 4000 ft. I just wonder if I can dig some up and pot it Thanks. Bill

I honestly can't think of the name. There are several species, this white one and others with red to purple flowers, a beautiful group of plants. Moraly the answer to your question is no, don't dig it up, it's there for others to enjoy as well. Legally, I know from dealing in the US and from friends that laws prohibiting the removal of species from the wild are even more strict than our own. You could be jailed.

It's some sort of Trillium, possibly T. grandiflorum but not sure .....

Thanks for the reply. I checked it out, that seems to be the one. It does produce seeds but it takes 2 years for it to bloom. I'll just collect some seeds and give it a try.
