Native to the Midwest, red trillium—also called bloody butcher—is a woodland plant that is easy to grow in rich, well-drained soil in part to full shade. A spring bloomer, it produces leaves, petals, and sepals, all in groups of three, which emerge from underground rhizomes on stems 15 inches tall. The leaves resemble those of a hosta and the purplish brown flower petals resemble a claw. The plant is clump-forming and requires regular watering.
