I don't think you would be spreading misinformation by naming the plants-all are native to your area and probably to your site with the possible exception of the trillium. Some of the sessile trilliums really can be hard to distinguish from one another. The most commonly cultivated (closely resembling your photo) is trillium luteum. Native to the smokies.I'd say there's a good possibility that's what it is, planted there on purpose by a former owner of your place. But that's just my guess.

Thanks for the guess, Warren. The deer don't seem too particular about which sessile trillium it is, though.
