The article focuses on the plant red trillium. The plant is known by different common names including Wake robin, Birthroot and stinking Benjamin. It was given the genus name trillium by Swedish taxonomist Carl Linnaeus because it possesses three of each of its parts including leaf, sepal and flower petal. Red trillium is included on the Protected Native Plant List of New York State which means that it cannot be picked, plucked or damaged without consent of the landowner.
