The life cycle lasts approximately six to eight weeks and is best planted in late winter or early spring before the trees leaf out. The anatomy of the Sweet Betsy is unique in that it has three-parted flowers and is a simple above ground flower. Also, something else that makes this plant unlike others is the fact that the stem is just an extension of the leaves itself.

Other common nicknames for the Sweet Betsy Trillium are whip-poor-will flower, large toadshade, purple toadshade, and bloody butcher.
