Three easy Triliums.

The flexipes is so white standing tall

This sulcatum is so over fed that everything about it is big!

The rugelii with nodding flowers has the most sweetist scent on a still mornng like sweet candy. I was very surprised as some Triliums usually stink like wet dog or theres nothing.

What a feast in this thread of late! Otto's T. rivale - what a stunner, the darkest I've seen. The flower arrangements are fantastic, what fascinating and beautiful waratahs. The trillium hybrids are gorgeous too. Many thanks for posting, everyone.

You have a great collection of Trilliums at the Bot Garden Stephen. Obviously they like that almost alpine climate at Mt Tomah. Today I'll take my little pink T. rivale to our OAGG show for the weekend. It's just a seedling but still nice and a good colour - nothing like Otto's though! I'll take my camera too in case there's something worth a picture.

Those who attended the NZAGS Study Weekend in 2008, when the principle speaker was our Forum Moderator and BD, Ian Young, may remember these lovely prints which Ian brought with him. I missed out on the puffins but two arrived here after a long flight south. Perhaps they were diverted from a journey to visit penguins on the Otago Peninsula, or make the acquaintance of our Royal Albatrosses. Anyway, they now live with me and are safely framed with their gull friends.

Sorry they are photographed from the side somewhat. A window reflects on the glass if tackled head-on.

Thanks Lesley and Anne.

I have Trilliums in pots and in the garden. The ones in pots just about out do the ones in the garden..more TLC in pots and they respond well. The climate here is just about right for many species.

Stephen  , you grow your Trilliums to perfection . I grow all mine in the garden where they are very happy ,but will try some in pots .
 your hybrids are beautiful . Did you do the crosses yourself ? I saw similar ones in Ian Christies nursery in2011.

Hello Otto,

thanks for saying.

No i didnt do the crosses. Some were suppose to be pure T sulcatum or erectum white so I suspect the bees have been busy and if grown next to each other as well with flexipes they will cross. I have sulcatum yellow and some have shades of pink, spashes and picotees. Will post some picks soon when they open.
