02.24.2020 Anticipation…is making me wait

Wait for Spring, of course.  But I usually share some image of a wildflower from the past when winter is on the wane and Spring is around the corner, although our Painted Trillium-Trillium undulatum is still about two months away. Still, it’s nice to think and plan for what’s coming.

I have shared this one before but it’s probably my favorite.  From 2010, I’ve made many others over the years but this is still tops for me. I planted some seeds I bought and hope to have some here in the yard one day.

  1. Wow … that is a beauty, Steve! Great control of light so you have kept all that lovey fine detail! I really like the splash of red around the centre.

    I saw photos today of trout lilies from NE Texas, and drooled. I’d love to find some of those, or some of our trilliums, but as the Music Man said, “You gotta know the territory.” How long does it take the trillium to establish, and bloom? Would it be reasonable to expect flowers this year from the ones you planted?

    • I’ll share some of our trout lilies in a few weeks when they start to bloom.

      As for the Painted Trillium, I don’t know. I didn’t think they could be cultivated but they obviously come from somewhere so I tried the seeds. I haven’t seen the plants available from the local nursery where I buy native wildflowers. I purchased some Large-flowered White Trillium plants and they flowered the first year which was a surprise. These will be a surprise also if they thrive.


  8. Quite lovely. I haven’t seen them before and will investigate as I believe your temps are cooler than mine and perhaps I will be able to enjoy them in my garden too. Thanks for sharing!

    Lovely. We have trillium here, but not that variety. Spring is starting to show its advance guard around here, the daffodils and crocus are blooming. (Yea!)
