Whip-poor-will Flower, or Sweet Betsy, is an easy Southeastern United States Trillium that prefers rich woodland soil in full to part-shade. Make sure to mix other non-aggressive woodland wildflowers to counteract this spring ephemeral when it goes summer dormant.
Provides shelter for small mammals and amphibians. Ants eat a fleshy substance, known as an elaiosome, off the seeds and help distribute the seeds when taken back to the colony.
The leaves are mottled with colors of silver, green, and gray. The leaves are fairly large and reach lengths of 7".
