Beautiful plant! I got some seed for this species, along with two color forms of Trilium chloropetalum through this year's seed exchange. Hopefully they will germinate. Although the seed arrived dry, they have swollen back to good size. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Southwest Nova Scotia, zone 6b or thereabouts

Bulborum, I had to look it up, but apparently it isn't all that far away from our home. This is what I found online:

Peggy's Cove is a few hours drive from us, but if it is there, I would bet we could probably find it in some of our local bogs (probably found on Brier Island).

Yes that's the one
You can make me happy if you find a few different plants for the collection
I am not in a hurry
I searched twice already for this one In BC without luck
probably I wasn't enough to the north

I'd guess my biggest asset is where I live -- the Pacific Northwest, specifically near Puget Sound.  It doesn't get too cold or too hot. It's hard to grow fruit trees but the trilliums love it.  Most of mine grow in part shade with lots of mulch / humus.  The soil is creek bottom clay with little round rocks, so I've added lots of shreds from the arborist over a number of years to improve drainage.  They get watered in the summer and most get mulched in the winter.  Trouble comes mostly from Eastern gray squirrels who dig them up -- they try them once in while, only to spit them out! -- and rabbits that chew foliage.

Trillium cuneatum is putting on a nice show this year.  The clump was crowded and responded nicely to my dividing it into smaller clumps last summer.

The T. chloropetalum clump is now in full bloom.  The white one came out early, got frozen, and was set back.  But it seems to have recovered.  All of these plants were grown from a single packet of seeds sown in 1998 that came from the AGC-BC seed exchange.
