Q: what happened to the themes and the challenges?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

I don't remember exactly how many years ago I dug some trillium from a friends woods, but I know that it was more than eight. Every year I check that little patch only to find wimpy little leaves and sometimes a really small flower. Seems they take years to establish themselves. Got a nice healthy small clump of trillium this year. Can't wait until it opens.
Facts about Trilliums I just discovered:
"Gardening with trilliums teaches the rewards of patience: after seeds germinate roots grow the first year, a single seed leaf the second and the first true leaf the third year. The familiar three-whorled leaves often do not develop until the forth or fifth year and may require 2 or 3 more years to bloom. Trilliums are long-lived, spreading slowly and taking several years to form a significant clump."
