Trillium recurvatum

Common name: Prairie Trillium

Native plant

The most common species of Trillium found in the area, it seems to tolerate a wider range of habitat. Though maroon flowers are simple and the spotted leaves are a collection of different greens, it is still a striking spring flower. It tends to make small colonies of tightly packed plants. I have seen spring migrants visit the flowers to collect the insects that it attracts.
