The Large White Trillium (Trillium Grandiflorum) is the official Ohio State Wild Flower which can be found in all of Ohio’s 88 counties. It produces a single odorless snow white flower, one of the largest of the Trillium species at 1.5 to2.7 inches and is sometimes referred to as the ‘white wake-robin."
Trillium is an energetic work in 3 distinct sections which chronologically takes us backwards through the history of Ohio from its present day (the first section), back to the civil war (the second section), then finally back to the wild frontier of Ohio’s Northwest Territory days.
The tempo of all three sections is brisk with the second section only being slightly slower than the other two, emphasizing the constant progression of time and history. Trillium melodically sings out the colorful history of Ohio as seen through the eyes of the wild, beautiful and ever present white trillium.
