Prairie Trillium 1 For $5.99 Description

Prairie Trillium 

Prairie Trillium or known as Trillium Recurvatum, is a wildflower plant. It is native to North America and is found in forests and clean places. It is a small perennial plant which means it blooms mid to late spring and goes dormant as the summer continues. It is best to plant these with other shade-loving flowers so that when they go lethargic in summer, those other flowering plants take their space until they bloom back in spring.

If grown together in a large amount, they serve an excellent usage as a backdrop or ground cover. This beautiful flowering plant grows unbranched. The central stem is erect and varies in color. It forms different shades ranging from light green to reddish-purple. The flower is covered by three spreading leaves, which generally bend outwards. These leaves are ovate, and the tips are slightly curved outwards.

These leaves also show a variety of colors as they mature. The upper surface is generally medium green, mottled with spots and patches of dark green and light green. The lower surface is not mottled and forms a pale green color throughout. However, some leaves also develop a solid green upper surface and stay non-mottled. That happens on rare occasions only and is not a standard characteristic of these leaves.

These leaves have an organized vein structure. The venation is parallel, but sometimes these veins interconnect with secondary veins. This organized structure makes the appearance of these leaves more pleasant. When the plant is immature, it only possesses leaves without the flower. 

Prairie Trillium has three petals and is maroon in color

On top of the leaves blooms a flower right in the center. This flower has three petals and is maroon in color. The petals have a rhombic-elliptic shape and grow about 1–1¼ tall. As the leaves curve in outward directions, the tips of the petals of prairie trillium flower curve in the inward direction. The sepals of the flower take more of a lanceolate-triangular shape.

The margins are smooth and soft. The margins of the sepals form a purplish color. Lastly, the stamens of the flower also curve inwardly. They are pretty small in size and grow only ½" tall. The overall appearance of the whole flower can be divided into three parts. The flower does not possess any significant or noticeable floral scent.

They start blooming in mid to late spring. They last about 3-4 weeks. Each flower then grows into a fruit or berry. These fruits are mainly just ½" long and contain a rhomboid-ovoid shape. The fruit itself is either green or purplish-green, but the seeds inside are often brown.

These perennials grow best in damp and drained soil. It is a shade-loving flowering plant thus prefers a partial to entire shade area. However, it can handle some amount of sun too. Rich soil with a neutral to acidic pH would be perfect for propagation. These plants do not require frequent planting as they live for many years.
