Artist's Description

These beautiful wildflowers add a touch of color to the carpet of leaves in the mountains around north Georgia. They are low plants with stems from 3 to 5 inches in hight, and unlike most trilliums their flowers open upward toward the sun. The Trillium cuneatum is referred to locally as the Sweet Betsy.

Trillium cuneatum, or Little sweet Betsy, is a flowering perennial plant which is native to parts of the southeastern United States that flowers in early March to mid April. It is also known as whip-poor-will flower, cuneate trillium, large toadshade, purple toadshade, and bloody butcher. This wildflower prefers to grow in rich soils mostly upland woods, especially limestone soils, also in less calcareous sites. It is found at elevations of 50 – 400 meters (165- 2,300 feet).
