Claire, beautiful Trillium clumps! They are growing very well in your garden. Next week the weather here will change again and it will be drier and warmer. Now there was frost, snow, rain, wind, more autumn than spring. Trillium ovatum f. maculosum Is very beautiful, that one is still missing in my collection.

Thank you, Herman, for the kind remarks.  Trillium ovatum f. maculosum was grown from seeds collected by Arlen Hill, who shared them with me.  I was a bit dubious about what the difference would be with Trillium ovatum.  I'm now a believer!

Trillium ovatum f. maculosum from wild-collected seed

I never heard about this form of T. ovatum, the foliage is certainly very pretty.

Claire, the combination of white flowers with these very special-marked leaves of Your Trillium ovatum f. maculosum is especially beautiful!

Gabriela, trilliums are rather easily available here, but my first purchases about 25 years ago were frequently lost to slugs. When I noticed that the two trilliums of my friends had leaves of thicker substance I asked for seed in the hope of a better resistance to slugs - which obviously worked. This one of the whites I raised from that bulk of seeds.



This is another one of the reddish flowering seedlings.



Since then, I tried to raise as many trilliums as possible from seed - if they survive the seedling-stage unharmed by slugs, they will show no problems as mature plants, I thought. This is a creamy yellow Trillium chloropetalum.

Mariette, again beautiful pictures, and I didn't know there could be differences in the thickness of leaves, it is good to know some can be more resistant to slugs which we have too.

Herman, you clumps are so big! I especially liked T.cuneatum leaves.

Claire, you have so beautiful Trilliums and T.pusillum looks wonderful. Cream coloured T.albidum is also very nice. :)

Mariette, you have now some very happy looking Trilliums :)
Slugs are not a big problem here, they do more damage in my rockery, or that's where I see the damage. The problem is that my shade space is coming to an end, so soon I will have to abstain from growing more such species.

Growing from seeds is always the better way to obtain seedlings adapted to ones garden, from any point of view.

See here:  https://www.srgc.org.uk/forum/index.php?topic=18899.0       for a post from John Aipassa on treating Trillium smut (Urocystis trillii) 

A treatment well worth trying - and perhaps on other smut diseases, too.
Thanks, John!

Thank you Maggi, very interesting post.
Trillium chloropetalum var. giganteum is still very impressive.
