Ian,
I notice that you show a photo of uvularia seedlings this week. Do your own plants set seeds? I have found that  mine very rarely sets any seeds,   maybe just 2 or 3 seeds every couple of years. I have never managed to germinate the seeds, despite sowing them fresh. I presume that fresh seed is best, as it often is for woodland plants? I was beginning to think that our climate is not conducive to seed setting.

I do not collect the seed I just find self sowing seedings around the parent plants - we do have a number of clones which always improves the chances of a good seed set.

Ian was sent this  photo montage  of  Trillium erectum plants  seen  in the  wild  by  Alan Grainger,  who lives now  in  Kentucky, which shows  some  of the  natural variations that can be  found in an area where T. erectum is the  only  trillium around. These were  photographed in the  John B. Stephenson  S. N. Park, Kentucky.

I have never had seedlings. I think your comment about having several clones is probably the answer. Thanks.

You have a really nice Iris sibirica (alba?), the way it holds its flowers so high above the foliage is very attractive. :)

I love the feeling of deep green at this time of year beautiful! I think the foliage plant might be Jeffersonia diphylla? Reminds me a bit of Achlys triphylla, but it looks like yours has two leaves.

Kelly, I don't think it is Jeffersonia in that photo - you can see an example of that on page 4 of the bulblog, 1st pic, bottom left.
Ian, I think your plant may be one of the Diphylleias, probably cymosa, which would fit with Kelly seeing divided leaves. They should just be deeply indented, not completely divided.

The plant in question should be Diphylleia grayi or D. sinensis; good guess Carolyn only that the NA D. cymosa is a much larger plant and the leaves are different.

The Laburnum is spectacular in flower! Another species barely seen in Canadian gardens, may have something to do with the fact the seeds are toxic (all parts actually); there's a bit of paranoia going on here with any plant that contains substances deemed toxic or poisonous.

Thanks to everyone for your posts and comments I appreciate them all, I can confirm that I was reminded that the plant is Diphylleia grayi.
