A Trillium from Mike, in South Carolina

Posted on |

I found this growing in my back yard and am curious as to what it is.

Hi Mike,

your plant is one of the Trilliums.  It could be one of several species, and I cannot be more specific without flowers.  The deep rich colors on the leaves are found in Trillium maculatum, as well as a few others such as T. underwoodii and T. reliquum.  Your location would have helped me more.
