Purple Prairie Trillium

A Pretty Woodland Ground Cover
One of the most exciting things about this Trillium is actually its mottled foliage. It's an enchanting woodland or shade garden ground cover, with striking leaves flecked with lighter hues. It slowly but reliably naturalizes—you can divide it every couple of years to increase the spread. The plant begins to grow right away at the end of winter, and then richly colored blooms appear in mid to late spring. Grows easily, as it is a North American native, and thrives especially well in a moist, shady spot. Purple Prairie Trillium combines beautifully with other spring wildflowers and ferns.
