    I have been told by a very knowledgeable and experienced alpine gardener that Trillium sessile can occasionally have white flowers rather that the usual burgundy shades.
    Do you agree? I can't find anything so far on the web.

    Thank you, Ron. I was already skeptical that Trillium sessile flowers could be white; now I am definitely more so.

    Answer: Yes, I think that is probably the case. I won't challenge my friend about it though - she's well into her 90s now; sharp as a tack and still propagating and growing alpines.
