“Purple Trillium” is also know as Stinking Benjamin because the single nodding flower has a unpleasant odor. However, it is another beautiful Spring flower that is often missed, because like the Trout Lily, the nodding flower faces downward. But gently lifting it with a small stick reveals the beauty of the flower. As the name suggests, the flower parts and leaves are arranged in multiples of three. This flower is delicate and the petals almost appear like velvet.
