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

    Looks like Trillium reliquum. A Georgia native, and endangered. A great find! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trillium_reliquum

    Trillium… Very slow grower… protect from deer… Can take 7 years from seed to bloom… But there are some serious trillium aficionados. http://edgewoodgardens.net/articles/trillium.html
