Herbaceous ephemeral perennial that normally grows in deeply shaded woodlands. It favors moist soil & winter snowfall. Flower colour varies from white to pink, to bluish purple. It is named for it’s 3-lobed leaves, like the human liver.
I found it in Peteroglyph Provincial Park. on the floor of the woods….growing through dead leaves. the terrain was rocky and wet (at that time) and the soil was very good qualtiy with lots of natural rot and compost.
The flowers were white or very purple or mauve. It has six petals and a very furry-fuzzy stem with leaves that are flat and broad and three tipped with rounded edges…. flowers are aprox 2-3 cm across…?
Much thanks to Victoria Jostes!! :]
