The Lovely Appearance of Red Trillium
Red trillium grows from a vigorous root system, forming a sturdy, seven- to twelve-inch high green-brown stem. Its true green, unbranched, ovate leaves measure about six inches long. They grow in whorls from the central stem and sometimes gently curve inward.
They grow in attractive clusters and become dense over time--some people even use this plant as a ground cover.
The plant gets its name from the flower with three petals and forms just above the leaves. The flower petals are red, maroon, or purple and arrive mid spring. They continue blossoming through early summer.
The flowers bear tiny berries that humans cannot digest. Instead, leave them for your garden visitors--birds seem to enjoy them!
