Snow Trillium provides a good example why I like those KLAN charts. This year, 2018, has been one of the coolest on record. Look at the 2018 KLAN chart in the bottom left menu. Notice how the temperatures in March and April are cooler than normal. Result? The Snow Trillium bloomed about one month later this spring. Importance? Comparing KLAN charts with earlier years allows the photographer to get a rough idea when Snow Trillium will bloom.
