These are so beautiful, and they look so 'right' in your woodland glade Lori.

they are so naturally lovely, Karen. I have had no part in it! the main illustration here is the way the brachts and blooms rise from the rhizomes in the leaf litter. It takes as long as seven years to bloom from seed, and their flowers have a skunky smell. The white trilliums (in the background) are a tiny bit later than the red. Which is probably why there is no cross pollenation.

Skunky smell, was going to buy one of these. Think I will give it a miss.

I'm sorry, Siris. I didn't mean to discourage you, the smell is not oppressive... if you stick your nose into the flower you will smell it... otherwise, they are gorgeous, dramatic, completely carefree wildflowers.

T. erectum? Actually, I was thinking about investing in one next year, but really I have no suitable space to put it.

definitively! I should take a pic of my little clump so you can see how much space you might need. Haven't been out to do so because of the blackflies! These are blood feeding early spring blighters who swarm any warm blooded creature and produce a profound aversion to outdoors in any gardener! That takes some doing believe me! lol... on my way!.

You have no idea how full my garden is, considering its small size. How awful, those flies. There is a pest for everything in the garden, including the gardener!
