Hello! My name is Jenna Miland. I have created this website for a class I am currently enrolled in called Organismal Biology (BIO 203) at the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse

I chose to make a website on the Trillium grandiflorum because it is one of my favorite flowers. 

There is a special spot outside of my hometown in southern Wisconsin where I can find these rare flowers.  It is one of my favorite spots to go to because it is very secluded and serene. 

I hope you find this website helpful in learning about the Trillium.  If you have any questions please contact me at: This site was last updated on 4/22/10.
