Notes:

this is growing wild in the woods behind my house amongst the ivy.
I’ve dug some up – big root system – and stuck in a pot.
wondering if would be good ground cover for shady bank in backyard. Or if is horribly invasive and I’ll regret it

    Trillium…
    Very slow grower… protect from deer…

    Can take 7 years from seed to bloom…

    But there are some serious trillium aficionados.

    Looks like Trillium reliquum. A Georgia native, and endangered.

    A great find!
