Red Trillium

Trillium erectum


Purple-pink flowers have 3 petals that are above whorls of pointed triple leaves. Usually, the petals are darker red, but they can also be pink, white, or yellowish. The petals have a foul smell, which attracts carrion flies (and other insects) that act as pollinators.


Growing in large patches in a wet, deciduous forest.
