It is a beautiful species which tends to flower rather early for a pedicellate trillium. It occurs in several widely disjunct populations west from eastern Maryland to the Ozarks of Missouri, south to western Texas and then back east through Alabama and Georgia into S Carolina. It is always very charming, dwarf (3" - 12") and has an upwards facing white flower. The flower often has ruffled margins and, in the manner of Trillium grandiflorum, fades to rose pink as it ages. The foliage of some forms is almost purple in color until it matures to deeper green. In the wild it is frequently found in seasonally boggy or even swampy areas, but does not require such conditons in cultivation.
