I have had no success with Paris, either bought as plants or from 
seed, which has never germinated.

I have bought Paris over several years, in person, from visits to 
several specialist nurseries in British Columbia and Washington, 
usually in flower, and looking very healthy, but have none to show 
for it.

Other plants that supposedly like the same conditions as Paris, 
bought from the same nurseries, at the same times, have thrived.  I 
have small colonies of several species each of Disporum, Epipactis, 
Podophyllum, Polygonatum, and Trillium.

Why is Paris different?
