Woodland Plants in the suburbs by Margaret Shields.
They have been transported from a higher altitude 600m down to approximately to 150m. It may not seem relevant to some, but to those who live in Australia will understand that is a lot considering our hot dry summers. However we do have cold winter temperatures sometimes down to zero degrees.
They have been in the lower altitude now for about 2 years. So it is a pleasing event to have the treasures flourish as they have so far.
Erythronium tuolumnense (below) is planted in a good potting mix grown outside shady position.

Trillium chloropetalum origin unknown possibly from T. Orpin.

 Trillium rivale from Viv.

Trillium rivale 'Purple Heart' Archibald seed 1.922 321 sown 11/2008
