CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Sept. 27, 2012 — Two Southeast Missouri State University students collaborated with a faculty member to co-author an article published in the September issue of American Nurseryman.

The article is titled Trillium recurvatum and focuses on a perennial which is abundant in woodland forests in southeast Missouri in the spring. According to the article, Trillium recurvatum is “often sanguinely called bloody butcher, or more simply wakerobin or purple trillium.” The plant, which has hosta-like, dark green leaves, is great for shaded or woodland gardens as spring groundcover and disappears during summer months.

Authors of the article are David Schnoes of St. Louis, a biology major, wildlife management option; Corey Jones of Jackson, Mo., an agribusiness major, horticulture option; and Dr. Sven Svenson, assistant professor of agriculture, who teaches horticulture.
