Purple Prairie Trillium

Maybe the best thing about this trillium is the mottled foliage, which looks like it's constantly in dappled sun—a little captured sunlight for your shady woodland garden. Trillium is a fascinating plant, it's named for all the threes present in its plant form—usually three leaves, sepals and petals on each stem. This variety begins growing right towards the end of winter and becomes one of the early harbingers of spring. It is a slow and steady native wildflower—it won't jump straight up but it'll dependably naturalize. Divide it ever few years in fall to increase the spread through a shady plot. Trillium recurvatum
