Ah..Well done Sticki...I hope it wasn't too pricey! Mind you I would have bought it awyway

Me too, Sticki. First one ever and new buds just on point of opening after the first bud got knocked off in the snow just as it was about to open. So, better luck this time......

Oh, I would buy this as well. Gorgeous.....I've been after this one as well.

Thanks Scottish and Yorkshire,
Pimms and Alexandramou I found it at a plant fair which I was taken to, it was £5, I thought that was reasonable and of corse no postage! Some were £12.50 which I did not buy!
Good luck oji, how very frustrating to knock the bud off!

brilliant plant Sticki & a bargain! these are a favourite although I cant grow them here, too hot & dry I think?
Included a mention of Trilliums in a rare bit of poetry I wrote years ago.

sometimes?!!

it has now turned a very pale shade of pink???

18 May, 2012

 

Probably perfectly normal - photosynthesis?

18 May, 2012

 

i dont know ~ does that turn it pink??

18 May, 2012

 

I think that it affects the pigments, so it could do..........

18 May, 2012

 

not turning into an autumn colour already???

18 May, 2012

 

That would be early, even with this weather!

It can't really be that! It looks happy though! I shall keep watching it.
