In 1986, the Ohio General Assembly made the white trillium Ohio's official wildflower. The white trillium is also known as the wake robin, the snow trillium, the great white trillium, or the large white trillium. The General Assembly selected this flower because it exists in all of Ohio's eighty-eight counties.
