Trillium erectum, or red trillium is also known as wake-robin, stinking Benjamin and Beth root. The flowers are dark maroon and usually appear in late April and May. This trillium prefers a more acid soil than Trillium grandiflorum. It is found in upland deciduous forests or mixed white pine deciduous forests. This trillium sometimes hybridizes with Trillium cernuum and a white variant has also been found.
