Has anyone else been finding four-leaf trillium?  I have two Nodding Trillium in my back yard on the Chattahoochee River that have four leaves and four petals.  Huh

Trillium with four leaves, and the associated  flower parts in 4's, are not that unusual.  They turn up fairly regularly among many, if not all species in the genus ( I have seen them in T. decumbens, T. cuneatum, T. luteum, T. simile, T. reliquum, and T. simile that come to mind mind immediately).  I have even come across a 5-leaf speciem in the woods.
