Trond - thank you so much for the seed! Now how long will it take to grow a plant to flowering like yours? In the meantime I will prepare the best spot I can find in the garden.

Tim, you are welcome! I can't tell you how long it take from seed as I bought small bulbs from Glendoick some years ago. I have two clumps and one is much bigger than the other. This one grows in very loose soil with plenty of leaf mould and I mulch with leaves etc every year.

Hi Hoy

Clintonia andrewsiana, it's really nice plant..and blue berries ...woaao very very nice.

You think the plant could really grow well in Ardennes in France ? If it's ok , i am interested to have some seed if you have actually !

Germination condition you can explain to me ?

See you soon.

Hi Botanica, nice to meet you! However, I am sorry to say that I have run out of seed of C andrewsiana for the season :-\ Better luck next year!
I am sure they will do well in Ardennes; they are woodland plants after all! I have never tried germinating this species but others germinates easily when sown in the autumn and overwintered outside.
