Red trillium, Wake robin #trilliumerectum 🌱I’m so pleased to see this one bulking up! More than a dozen flowers this year. Time to try a division. 🌱
“Trillium erectum, the red trillium, also known as wake robin, purple trillium, bethroot, or stinking Benjamin, is a species of flowering plant in the family Melanthiaceae. The plant takes its common name “wake robin” by analogy with the European robin, which has a red breast heralding spring.” Wikipedia .
