Trillium sulcatum - Southern Red Trillium


"Southern Red Trillium is found in moist mountainous woodland areas in the eastern and central U.S.A.  It particularly likes the sedimentary rock of the Appalachian Mountains. 

"Plant in partial to full shade in humus-rich acidic to neutral moist soils. The flower is usually maroon but can be purple, white, yellow or bi-colored. They occur on a curved stem above the large bracts. The sepals are green but may have maroon streaks and boat-shaped." (North Carolina Extension)
