Miller to discuss rare trout lilies

CAIRO — Grady County’s Wolf Creek is a highly diverse hardwood forest with the highest concentration of trout lilies known anywhere.  Dan Miller will speak on it Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Roddenbery Memorial Library.

Miller is a major proponent of the preserve. He is a native plant nurseryman from Trillium Gardens in Tallahassee, Fla.

Donors provided the money for the preserve and now the dream has come true. The destiny of one of the most awe-inspiring botanical landscapes in the flowering South is now in the books.

Miller said there are 30-50 million estimated trout lilies on the property. It is home to the greatest expanse of trout lilies known to exist anywhere, experts say. The fertile land spills over with orchids, trilliums, violets and beautiful oak, pine, beech, magnolia and hickory.

Miller will show beautiful slides and talk about this year’s blooms For more information call 229-377-3632 or find us on Facebook, Twitter or http://www.rmlibrary.org.
