Where & When to Spot

I see this flower late April and May on the forest floor in Park Angrignon.

Three red, purple petals alternated by three green leaves (bracts). There is a white morph which looks very similar to Large White Trillium. If you spot a the white morph look at arrangement and form of stamens and pistils.
