Trillium chloropetalum is a spring-flowering perennial plant native to the west and north-west coast of the United States. Common names: Common Trillium, Giant Trillium, Giant Wake Robin, and Sessile Trillium.

Color is variable, often dark red to white. A typical monocot, it has leaves and flowers that are grouped in threes. It is clump-forming and prefers a shady habitat, since its natural habitat is the woodland floor.
