The first of my sown Trilliums are about to flower as well.
Seed was fresh, some germinated the first year, the most one year later.
The first of my Trillium L seeds are germinating now, they were dormant last year.

What lovely marked specimens Luc. I have many pots of seedlings from the Trillium L seed distribution and hope some will flower this year? The advantage with this seed distribution is the seeds are fresh and can be sown when optimum germination can be achieved. Join the group, contribute seeds (complete 'berries' squashed in a wet paper towel sent in a polybag to Sue Hollis in Kansas where she does a fantastic job redistributing them to members).

Anthony, how can you send 'squashed berries' to the States? This seems to make a mockery of what our American members are going through at the moment to get their dry, pure seed from the exchange.

The whole system is a farce anyway. A squashed berry is sterile and as long as the pulp is washed off before they are sown there will be no problem as far as pathogens or viruses.

I have some Trillium grandiflorum roseum seeds (plus the normal white ones) if anyone wants any? Send me a PM.

I agree that seeds of some woodland subjects probably are better if sent in a berry. This holds for Ranzania at least.
If there are any left, i would be grateful.

Will send some Göte. These are the last of the roseum. I still have plenty of the white form.

Anthony,

I have to agree with you 100%.  I would worry more about seed being imported in bird foods, etc, than seed distributed by otherwise educated and responsible gardeners.  Such policies make criminals out of best citizens.

PS: I sent you a private E-Mail, about seed.
