Red Trillium - Trillium erectum
Red Trillium has been used by the Native Americans for many years. It is often used as an antiseptic or diuretic. The roots can be boiled and used to prevent diarrhea. If made into an ointment it can help with swelling and reducing inflammation and helps with arthritis and sore joints.
Red Trilliums, when they flower, typically exhibit a range in color from brick red to dark burgundy. The Red Trillium grows with three leaves on the mature plant with three petals and three sepals sprouting from the middle of the flower. Both the leaves and the petals are triangular shaped with the wider part closest to the middle of the flower. The leaves are bright green in color and the flower is a beige color that looks almost white. They are safe to plant in areas where deer frequent, and their bright color and soft fragrance can serve to attract butterflies. These beautiful Red Trillium plants are so gorgoeus that they have attracted many different names, such as the wake-robin and stinking Benjamin. Red Trillium is a perennial plant, and should flower in your garden year after year.
