The article offers information on the trout lily in New York. The plant is an early spring treat found blooming in New York's rich, moist woods. The name trout lily derives from the distinctively mottled green and purple leaves that resemble a brook trout's body. The flower opens so completely during daylight hours that the three petals and three sepals are reflexed or curled backwards, then closes again each evening. The deeply buried bulb-like corm of this plant is shaped like a dog's tooth.
