Nice ones Dave! Offhand, I don't think I've seen a trillium I didn't like- though I reserve the right to modify that (such as if there are any double flowers I'm forgetting...lol)

It's getting towards the end of the season here .
The first couple pics are of a beauty i was given recently --huge flowers of substance. :-* :-*
I quite like T.viridescens --sorry leaves are a bit 'munted' by the wind. :(
however i must admit T.catesbaei isn't a favourite.....

It is nice to see these Trilliums, Dave! Now I am looking forward to the spring here yet it is still fall.
Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!
Question for Trillium seed propagators - What do you think of Deno's suggestion that Gibberellic Acid is almost requisite to induce germination in recalcitrant Trillium seed? I received some seed via the seedex (two colour forms of T chloropetalum, along with seed for T. albidum), which was not moist packed. I am wondering if dripping a GA3 solution over the planted seed would be helpful to boost my chances at getting any germination from them , as Gene Mirro does with Gentians - see thread: http://nargs.org/smf/index.php?topic=1232.0
