Leena, your Trillium nivale seem to set very vital seeds. Here never.

I know nivale is a very early species

T.nivale was coming up two weeks ago before the new snow came. Yesterday I noticed it coming through snow. :)
-5C still last night.

Snow is melting now fast, so I hope T.nivale will flower open it's flower in a week or so. :)

Trillium nivale, indeed!  :) A great success to grow them in such numbers in the future, Leena!

@ partisangardener: my trilliums occasionally don´t come up for one year or more, most likely due to slug damage. An older gardening friend told me that she planted a lot of bought trilliums, but hardly saw any of them the next years. After she started to control slugs she had better success with her trilliums.

@ Herman, You really do grow an impressive collection and big clumps of trilliums! Did You notice any differences regarding slug damage among the species?

Most of my trilliums are grown from seed, like this Tr. kurabayashii.



The red colouring of the flowers varies slightly.

Mariette, I sprinkle granules against the snails early in the spring. Prevention is better than cure. This year there was more damage at the leaves due to large temperature fluctuations, a lot of rain and hail in March.

Thank You, Herman! Gardening surrounded by paddocks and wasteland, slugs tend to creep in my garden all the time they are active. Therefore, I gave up bothering with them. Despite the often very wet condtitions due to our heavy clay, a good deal of trilliums survive, the sessile ones doing better than the petiolated.

Mariette,
To protect special plants from slugs in a limited area, buy a roll of copper flashing from a building supply store. Form it into a shallow trough surrounding the plants, you want to protect and join the ends with caulking. Fill it with beer and cover it with aluminum foil held off the ground with spacers of any convenient waterial at random intervals. use rocks to keep the foil from blowing away. Every four or five weeks bail out the old beer and refill it.

Thank You, MarcR! Many years ago, when the slug population was far bigger, I practised this in my vegetable plot. Meanwhile, due to the long periods of drought during recent years, there are fewer slugs around. Also, the number of predators appears to be increased in my garden, which means that I often notice less damage than friends using slug pellets. Right now, I feel I can get along with the little damage slugs still do.  :)

I am very much impressed with your big healthy clumps.
Trillium pusillum var. alabamicum I have only three plants. Flower is open and I have already pollinated one flower while the pistil is open.

I am also very impressed with your achievements; they are such beautiful plants!
 Herman, I would love to see these Trilliums face to face and visit your garden to see what conditions they live in. ::)
 Here I am not yet very good at growing them, but I am working on it.  My Trillium luteum has not yet reappeared, but it is later, it seems, so I still have some hope that it will come back a bit more.

Our weather has been sunny one day, hail storms the next.  Trilliums are later than normal and some are still not in bloom.

Trillium ovatum seeds around in pretty harsh, dry conditions, surprising me how it can spread.  It's just starting to come up.
