Thanks Rick

Still a number of others yet to open fully including the double white T.grandiflorums.

The plant in the left foreground is of a Erythronium seedling--revolutum i think .

The Erythronium in the box is E.citrinium .

For more Trillium viewing  :rolleyes: :rolleyes: here's a link to the recent Trillium weekend in NZ.

Dave, I wouldn't mind growing any of them in my garden ;D
I have planted some this fall and sown some seeds too hoping to get at least a couple of plants surviving :)

Thanks Hoy .

T.grandiflorum clump followed by a close up.

Seed raised from T. grandiflorum roseum ,although showing dark stems, unfortunately blooms are white . :(

T.grandiflorum flore pleno earlier on showing the yellow center before this starts to fade as the bloom matures.

Close up.

A few more others ........

Cheers Dave.

The green veins on the petals of the last one is particularly nice.

Love the red stems, too.

Really beautiful photos! I'm anxious for spring now too....I planted lots of Trillium this year from various sources and sowed loads of seed. I have definitly caught the bug! :D

Thanks Rick,Hoy and Amy

A year or so ago i moved a number of strong erectums , flexipes and sulcatums ,from around the garden and planted them into a bed together in the hope the pollinators would do their thing and I'd end up with some interesting colour combinations.Obviously it will be awhile before i see the results of that experiment.

However in the meantime i am pleasantly surprised each season when seedlings sown from various sources ,flower for the first time  --here's one i found today --nice purplish edging to the petal.

Cheers Dave
PS Rick --just noticed today the Podophyllum you commented on earlier is forming flowers  ;D
