Actually i underestimated Roland ....my earlier pic only shows a third of the germinated pots.

Here's a few images from today.

No slugs and no strong wind to damage the beauties?

Or else revamp parts of the existing garden by giving away a few Rhodos,Camellias etc and planting out a few T.s.

Shots of a couple small beds completed last year ---currently only the Westerners are in bloom with some of the Eastern sps /hybrids just coming through the mulch--hence the gaps ......

Followed by pics of Trilliums from various plots.

Very little slug activity or wind to worry about Trond --although i do have other problems .

Last year and the one previously i sprayed with Octave to counter the effects of fungal attack on some of the Westerners--this dries up the leaf edges where there is obvious damage however i think the ground around the plant needs to well soaked to improve success-- some plants are blind for a year or two..... a few rot----some recover and do well and flower the following season......

As an experiment to see what happens I've not bothered spraying this year --in any case my focus is on trying to increase my colour forms of Easterners.

Cheers Dave.

That looks to be Erythronium revolutum which often has nicely mottled leaves.  My Dad has huge patches of the stuff and some of them have the darkly mottled leaves.  I've also got a few (I think-they're dormant now).

Thanks Rick

If you want seed of that Erythronium just let me know.

As Jan has mentioned it's E.revolutum.

I have a number of Ery. pics so i'll do a search and post under the correct thread ... :) .

Cheers Dave.

A few more Westerners out .

I'll leave it to the experts to try and put a label to them ..........I'm not going there  :)

The second last pic is the first flowering of a plant i raised from seed as T.angustipetalum with two flowering stems --in my experience this is not unusual.
Will be interesting next season to see if the pink colour tone intensifies.

Last pic --an Easterner --a clump of Trillium grandiflorum.

Cheers Dave.

Dave, I have to shut my eyes when looking at these plants! Or else the lust to grow such gems grows too big ;D
I have planted some of the more common types till now and sowed seeds but I aim to slowly increase my collection!
