Now that's a happy  circumstance, David!  I think it's the  elegance  of the  flowers  in combination with such a fantastic range  of  leaf  colours and  markings  that makes them just  irresistible. 8)

I noticed in one of your photos there are Anemone nemorosa close to your Erythronium.

I have many fancy forms of Anemone nemorosa which have short rhizomes and increase modestly.  I also have one form that increases very fast, with very long rhizomes.  Two years ago I noticed that I had no Erythronium revolutum flowers even though I normally have several hundred.  The anemone had overtaken the whole bed, with its  long rhizomes making a solid mat, thus preventing the erythroniums from emerging.  I have been removing the anemones, a very time-consuming job, and this year I have some erythronium flowers, but it will be a few years yet before I am anemone-free.

Diane thanks for the warning it is an issue I am aware of and take such measures to ensure the Erythroniums remain in good form. The style of our garden depends on achieving a happy balance between plants.

An enjoyable last blog Ian ,as they all are.

Quote "I would count myself among those who are confused with the identification of Trillium kurabayashii which in cultivation is often confused with Trillium chloropetalum and Trillium angustipetalum: it seems to me that in cultivation these names have all been applied to the same plants.The latest research suggests Trillium kurabayashii is now considered by the Jepson Manual to be a synonym for Trillium angustipetalum." End of quote.

I would also count myself confused ...... ;)

I see the The Jepson Herbarium page for Trillium Angustipetalum mentions the synonmy issue as you have mentioned above Ian however I find it interesting the page also has an unabridged note stating that Trillium kurabayashii is treated as separate sp. in Flora Of North America, based on differences in cytology; bract orientation, color, and texture; and petal shape ......


In my experience further confusion occurs because as you say "once brought together in a garden many Trilliums will hybridise" and it can become difficult to identify parents of spontaneous plants.
