I will collect as much seed as possible from the Trillium kurabayashii later this year. 

I will post here when it is available.

I am not knowledgeable on growing trillium's but in 2010 I received seed of T grandiflorum moist packed from Kristel and this is now germinating.

On a trip to N. California last July I collected some green pods of T. ovatum on the of chance it would grow. I popped the pods and sowed the soft seeds as soon as we got home.This is now  germinating like cress.

At the same time we collected a couple of green berries of Clintonia andrewsiana and these seeds are also up.

Tony, that makes sense! Unripe seeds have not entered their dormancy so they should germinate easy - if they're not too unripe ;)

Jan, now the Trilliums have started germination :D :D

Hi everyone,

My name is Marianne and I live in Sweden, please excuse my poor english.  :-\

I have been reading here for some time now and I think this is a wonderful forum and I love all the beautiful images.And I have learned quite a bit here as well, so great. :D

I'm new when it comes to Trilliums and I have only a few in my garden and they are planted either last year or this year, some of them bloomed this year. I think there is a seed pod going on in my T. chloropetalum and I would love to try to sow these. My question is how deep do you sow them in the soil? All advice would be welcome.

Hello Roland

Thank you for the answer. The seeds will barely be covered with soil....I will definitely be keeping that in mind.I'm so excited about this and I just love Trilliums.

How do you put in a picture in the forum?
