Trillium texanum, the Texas trillium or Texas wakerobin, is a species of flowering plant in the family Melanthiaceae. It is found in east Texas, extreme southwestern Arkansas and extreme northwestern Louisiana, typically in forested wetland habitat. Due to its limited range, it is designated as an imperiled species. In Louisiana, it is critically imperiled.
Trillium texanum was first described by Samuel Botsford Buckley in 1861. It is sometimes regarded as a variety of Trillium pusillum, either T. pusillum var. texanum or T. pusillum var. pusillum.
