Trillium reliquum Freeman is an endangered plant restricted to 20 counties in three states that is imperilled by habitat loss and encroachment from the exotic invasive vines, kudzu (Pueraria montana Ohwi) and Japanese honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica Thunb.) My study examines the impact of kudzu and honeysuckle on native plant communities, T. reliquum population dynamics and T. reliquum reproduction.
