Triangle Flower - Fauna
Written By: Elizabeth Barrette (Writer)
Triangle flower is a spring ephemeral that grows in the North.
 
 

Common Name(s): Triangle flower (dosirf)


Description: Triangle flower is a spring ephemeral that blooms in the second month, Romimev. It grows 6-12" tall. A smooth stalk supports three large ovoid leaves, forming a background for the plant's flower. Each flower has three petals, broad at the base and pointed at the tip, creating the characteristic triangular shape which rises above the leaves. The flowers may be white or colored; the colored ones range from teal through blue to indigo.

The root has a thick swelling right under the base of the plant for food storage, surrounded by thinner fibrous roots for anchorage and feeding. If the plant is pulled, it breaks off at the base, leaving the root undamaged to regrow new leaves. Actually digging up the roots takes quite a bit more work.


Habitat: These plants grow in moist soil, in forested or brushy areas where there will be dappled sun in spring and shade shortly thereafter. They often form large colonies alongside riverbanks or lakeshores. They fill damp hollows in forests and shady areas in marshes.
