I believe I read somewhere that wild trilliums are biennials - is that correct ? They - along with the Ladyslippers I have never come up in the same place twice - therefore I would think that possibly they seed after flowering ???? I haven't found the answer to that in the gardening books I have

I'm pretty sure trilliums are perennials. The nomadic behavior you describe though does sound like typical biennial restlessness.

I think I would still classify them as perennials. Try marking their location with a stake and and follow them a couple of years to be sure your memory isn't faulty.

Trilliums are perennial but if you pick the flower and leaves. It's hard to pick one without the other, they normally die. I have them growing up back of my place. Check this website out:
