Earth Day Conservation Easement Survey in Roane County

Christie drove over from Nashville to survey this tract that includes a portion of Whites Creek and a lot of Piney Creek. The owner is interested in putting a conservation easement on it this year. This waterfall is a tributary to Ford Branch.
I think this is a large flowered trillium. Anybody want to jump in?
I have been unable to key this one out. It's gorgeous though. Anybody know what it is?


  1. Looks like hairy phlox to me, Phlox amoena.

  2. I think Phlox has 5 petal flowers.
