Dear Janet and Oliver:

Welcome to the list!

Funny you should mention Anemones, because I was walking in the woods this
morning and saw masses of what I think is Anemone deltoidea, along with the
absolutely-wonderful-but-so-slow-from-seed Clintonia andrewsiana.  It seems
a bit early for the Clintonia, but this is a different population from the
one I have collected seed from in the past. Trillium ovatum is still in
bloom, but Scoliopus bigelovii is just about finished.  The anemone is white
with very prominent gold stamens.

Telos Rare Bulbs
Northern California coast, mild wet winters, almost frost-free/cool summers
