About the Author

Frederick W. Case, Jr., and his late wife, Roberta, were partners in delightful plant adventures for some four decades. Hardy explorers, they trekked through swamps and woodlands to see and photograph each of the North American Trillium species in the wild. They also grew all the American Trillium species and three of the Asiatic species in their experimental gardens in Saginaw, Michigan. This book is the culmination of their expertise in growing trilliums.

For many years Fred was an adjunct research investigator at the University of Michigan Botanical Gardens. Roberta was a teacher, field biologist, plant hybridizer, and orchid breeder. Now retired, Fred continues to lecture regularly on trilliums and other flowers, serves on the Michigan Technical Advisory Committee on Threatened and Endangered Plants, and is a lifetime fellow of the Cranbrook Institute of Science. He has written books on orchids of the Great Lakes region and wild flowers of the Northeast. The North American Rock Garden Society has honored him with both the Edgar T. Wherry Award and the Carlton R. Worth Award, for the contribution his numerous articles and books have made on the subject of plants.
