Description
Sweet Betsy is a perennial wildflower native to the piedmont and mountains of North Carolina and the southeastern USA. In nature, it can be found in rich soils of cove forests, moist slopes, and bottomlands, usually over mafic or calcareous rocks. It is one of the largest and most vigorous of the sessile Trilliums. The plant spreads by underground rhizomes.

The flowers have three petals that are usually maroon, 3 sepals and 3 bracts that are large and mottled. Grow this plant in moist well-drained humus-rich soils in part to full shade. Use in a shady or woodland garden.

Insects, Diseases, and Other Plant Problems: No serious problems. Slugs and snails are occasional pests and leaf spot, rust and smut are occasional disease problems. It does not transplant well.
