    That is very nice with the purple at the base of the petals.

    Trillium albidum will have some individuals that do that, you can kind of see some here: Pacific Bulb Society | Trillium Species One

    The two species are native to different parts of the continent, though, so what the seed seller has / had in their inventory would help.

    Thanks Daniel

    The seed came from the AGC of BC`s exchange. I`m not complaining as often unexpected treasures do pop up. It is lovely and, with the help of a fine artist`s brush, will get some seed to sow in the fall.
