Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral macybee On Nov 23, 2007, macybee from Deer Park, TX (Zone 9a) wrote:

It has twisted petals in many forms, but these are very long, thin and erect. It also has a unique look, taking it's name from the lance-shaped leaves. The stems can be very tall, easily up to 18", and 2.5 to 3 times longer than the leaves. Flower color appears very variable, from dark maroon, through bicolors to almost green. the rhizome is also very unusual, being long and thin, and very brittle. It also tends to branch and form tight clumps more frequently than most other trilliums. In habitat it is more often found closer to small creeks, usually on the flood plain and in areas that can be totally inundated for several days or weeks in particularly wet springs. In addition to the 'normal' populations in central Georgia and Alabama, there are populations in the Florida panhandle near the Chattahoochee River which flower very early, before the end of February in many years.
