I'm late to return to this topic, I just don't have enough time to respond as much as I'd like.  So many beautiful trillium being posted here, I like them all, but several cause even more Trillium lust than normal ;) such as kurabayashi yellow form, cuneatum, chloropetalum forms, sessile, and of course rivale, oh my!

I've had lots of trillium in bud for weeks and weeks, finally T. ludovicianum if fully open and looking nice, the center has a rosy glow.

Wonderful plants, all!

Karl, my yellowish T. chloropetalum is not 'Ice Cream', it was a seedling from open pollinated plants.

Mark, I love T. ludovicianum. But it's not easy to grow over here...I guess I'll have to try it from seed once!

The last days we really got warm weather - the hottest days for two years! Even now 10PM local time it is still 23oC!Two Trilliums with nodding flowers showed the colour at last. The red one I assume is T. erectum but the other I don't know.

Trond, the red one, with nodding blooms with reflexed petals that form a roughly triangular shape, is Trillium vaseyi.  It's in bloom here too, one of my favorite species.

OK, thanks Mark. I got it with no name, just a number!

Any idea what the other is?

Many nice ones here! So far my Trilliums consist of two pots of seedlings (erectum and grandiflorum, I think, without checking) which after several years are finally making nearly visible leaves  ;D I'll have to look for some with marked leaves, I know someone in Manitoba that was growing one (don't know which) so I should be able to find a hardy enough sp :)

Could be a white form of T. erectum - it looks like it to me. The white form is not that rare and the red ovary is a strong clue to T. erectum parentage and the wide diamond-shaped leaves are also like T. erectum.  Nice in any case!

Thanks Lis! So the red one I thought was an erectum wasn't and the white one I didn't think was an erectum probably is! Glad to know - I got them with a number and no name :-\
