Product Description

Sweet Betsy - Trillium Cuneatum

 
Trillium Cuneatum, otherwise known as Sweet Betsy or Wood Lily is an herbaceous perennial, native to the Southeastern United States. This perennial is the largest of the sessile trilliums, featuring three leaves ending in a circular arrangement, rising to 12” to 18” in the spring. It has grey-green mottled leaves 3” to 7” in length and from the center, a three-petaled maroon flower, but only does during late March-early May. Sometimes flower color varies, being maroon to yellowish brown, or a reddish green. The flower gives off a faint scent some say is banana, which is the reason for the name Sweet Betsy. Once the flower is gone, it is replaced by berry-like seeds. 
The plants prefer a deep organic soil that is well drained.  Leaf mulch applied to plant is preferred, and done in the fall. The plant spreads gradually, and forms clumps, if undisturbed. Plants are typically found in wood areas in states of Mississippi, Alabama, Kentucky, and North Carolina in the south, and Georgia. Plants are best suited to woodland gardens, shady rock gardens, and native plant gardens; however, these plants do not transplant well. Trillium Cuneatum does not require a lot of maintenance, 

Other common names for this plant are: Toad Trillium and Whippoorwill Flower.
