Trillium erectum (Trilliaceae)
(TRILL-ee-um ee-RECK-tum)
Purple Trillium

Trillium erectum is a ruby-colored star of springtime. Solitary nodding maroon-to-purple flowers rise on a tiny stalk and hang above the leaves. They are very slow to naturalize, but with time you'll get a beautiful carpet of wine-red and green in woodland gardens.
