As a follow up to germination times for Arthropodium strictum (choc lily), here in NE Victoria with wet winters & very dry summers (but not wet this winter unfortunately!) - seed that I sowed in the autumn in pots in an unheated poly tunnel, is just beginning to germinate right now.  In the bush round here they will start to emerge late winter and flower late spring/early summer.  If anyone would like seed I could collect some this season.  I think their fragrance is a choc/caramel/vanilla mix.

in the Strathbogie Ranges where our usually reliable winter rainfall has not eventuated this year - so far!
