|Columbine (2012 - 010)|
|Sweet Betsy (2012 - 011)|
This is called a Sweet Betsy. It's in the Trillium family. The map I found for its range says it does make it up to Illnois, but I get the feeling the map filled in the whole state, even if the plant doesn't appear in all areas. In this case, I'm guessing it stays further south in the state. I've never seen one up here in or near Chicago.
