trout lily, dog-tooth violet, adder's tongue
flowers of trout lily, Wexford County, MI, May 2013
Native lily, common to forests of the eastern US. When fully open, has strongly recurved petals. Blossom 1-2 inches across. Leaves are dappled with brown looking similar to the spotted sides of a trout. The root is long and pointed, giving the "dog-tooth" common name. The leaves are edible, and make a nice addition to salads.
