Young plants. This species is a one which is often grouped into T. chloropetalum giganteum to which it is similar, the main difference being the width of the petal. Being one of the first to rise in spring, the foliage is apple green initially with strong deep brown/red mottling which lasts for many weeks until the foliage has fully expanded. The flowers are the main attraction here as always on trilliums. These are deep red and borne from the centre of each leaf, each petal can be up to 10 cms high on well grown plants and quite narrow at around 1 cm or so.
