.......
As Marc was so kind and generous to offer to buy seeds of trillium species of interest and donate them to the seed exchange, perhaps someone in Britain would be kind enough to buy seed of Roscoea purpurea ´Paul Bygrave hybrids´ and donate them as well to provide Marc with these?

Mariette,

I donated a selection of Trillium seed to NARGS.  I briefly forgot to whom I had promised them.  I will donate a large selection of US trillium seed to SRGC next year :-\

I am in USDA zone 8b where temperatures almost never fall below 15F -9.4C.  Rainfall 50" 110 cm + but none  June-September.  We seldom get snow; but when it comes we get 30" overnight. Soil is sandy loam with a lot of humus.

Hi Marc, it was Herman Mylemans, who uttered an interest in certain species - I do not own the amenities to grow a large collection of anything. Nevertheless, I admired Your generosity when reading it.  :)

Colchicum bivonae, this species can grow under deep shade as sunny position.

C.bivonae is also one of my favourites, and it does well here.
These pictures are from mid September.

Some more Colchicums.
'Glory of Heemstede' is also a good one.
'Gracia' is really beautiful. In the background there is 'Emerald Town'.

In the foreground 'Autumn Queen' and in the back plants bought as Colchicum cilicicum 'Purpureum' from garden center. I'm wondering if these are C.cilicicum??
What do you think?
In the second picture the ones only coming up on the right are 'Faberge Silver'.

Thank you Maggi. It is a bit crowded corner but I like how all are flowering at the same time. :)
