I ran into my first blooming Trillium of the year today. What a beautiful plant.

I also found this flower that I have not I.D.'d yet. If anyone can help me out I would appreciate it.

Hi Rich,

Yep, that second one is Jack-in-the-Pulpit.  I too love Trillium.  I have been getting into native gardening for the last 3 years.  I have some Trillium now growing on the side of my house where it is shady.  If anyone who lives near (Kane County) and is interested in native planting, I know a man that is looking to give away(free) many woodland plants: Trillium, Bloodroot, Toothwort, Spring Beauty and May Apples to name a few. He needs to thin out his overgrowing woodland garden areas. Just email me and I can forward you his name and phone number.
