Trillium smallii (Syn. T. apetalon) / Enreisou エンレイソウ

 
Trillium smallii (Syn. T. apetaron) is a perennial herb inhabiting damp places in forests. Stems stand 20-40cm high with leaves in a whorl of three, each in a shape of a rhomboid-circular, at apexes where single flowers emerge. Outer perianth lobes, 1.5-2.0cm in length each, are composed of three, and the color is green or brownish-purple; inner perianth segments usually exist not. There are many variations in flower color and shape. Bloom time: April-May.
