An unusual and interesting species. The foliage is rather small - up to 7 cms long and 5 cms wide. Each leaflet is held in threes on top of 25 cm stems, occasionally to 30 cms if the soil is fertile. This species does not really make large clumps, it will however spread more rapidly making a carpet of single stems from its slender rhizomes. Flowers are very different from any other Trillium. Petals are narrow and usually deep red, occasionally yellow but we don't have one this colour - if you have we would be very interested! The petals tend to lay horizontally towards the leaf surface and have a conspicuous twist like a corkskrew. Satmens are also worth mentioning as they are a deep red and enlarged, erect adding to the interest of the flower. Sorry for the poor picture quality!
