Painted Trillium Loves Mostly Shade and are Flowering Beauties

The painted trillium consists of three large leaves. The blue-green leaves are about 2 to 4 inches long. From the leaves is a thin arching stock where the single flower blooms. The three petals of the flower have a wavy edge. At the base of the flower, is an upside down v that is a pink to purple. In the fall a seed producing red berry appears. The leaves are edible, but the berry and root are not.

The Painted Trillium seeds are beautiful to ants, and they help to spread this wildflower. They take the seed back to their nest and eat the fleshy meat. When they are finished with the seed, they dispose of it in another part of their nest. It is in this space that the seed is protected and able to germinate and grow.

This perennial likes moist soil but not wet. Painted Trillium proliferates in rotted logs and trees in the forest. People use this plant for borders and ground cover for shady areas.
