We visit Asheville NC fairly often. We enjoy the music and art events, and fly fishing in the nearby rivers. During some of our recent trips I had the chance to spend time sketching at the North Carolina Arboretum.
Toad Shade is one of my favorite Trilliums. I was delighted to find some of them blooming at the NC Arboretum this past spring. The large leaves have wonderful irregular spots that form a great foil for their dark magenta flowers.
