The whitish, anemone-shaped flowers of the sharplobed hepatica may have a pinkish or lavender tint to them. They appear in early spring, on a single hairy stalk no more than 8" tall, well before the first leaves. As the common name suggests, the leaves are lobed and come to a sharp point. Foliage is very attractive with soft purple veins and remains evergreen, dying back in late winter before the first blooms appear.
Trautvetteria caroliniensis is a woodland wildflower with 12", large, deeply lobed and deeply serrated green leaves. When colonized, these will create an impressive visual ground cover. The stems are terminally divided, up to 4' tall and bear clusters of white, fragrant flowers. They do not have petals, but their dense, extended white stamens form showy, white orbs.
Though the flowers of Trillium erectum are usually in shades of purple or crimson, they will sometimes tend towards light pink, and even whitish hues. The three petaled flowers appear on 4" stems above the leaves, and will last for up to 3 weeks before giving way to fleshy berry-like fruit.
