A member of the Lilly family. It's name is from the three prominent leaves. The plant has one dark red flower directly above the center of the three leaves that seems to never want to open. It is a native plant to the southeastern US and grows in dense woodlands and moist areas.

The mottled leaves are an identifying characteristic and make this plant an interesting garden specimen.
