Artist's Description

Trillium is one of many plants whose seeds are spread by ants. At maturity, the base and core of the trillium ovary turns soft and spongy. Trillium seeds have a fleshy organ called an elaiosome that attracts ants. The ants extract the seeds from the decaying ovary and take them to their nest, where they eat the elaiosomes and put the seeds in their garbage, where they germinate in a rich growing medium. Only the purple one is used for to modulate hormones and for pregnancy …Also known as stinking Benjamin because after a while in a vase it really smells…LOL
