	I was hoping to see more from members talking about growing Paris, these
are very special as far as I'm concerned. I first saw Parisat shows on a
visit to the U.K. a few years ago and set out to find if was available here
Australia. Eventually I found Paris quadrifolia listed by two mail order
sources, one a large concern and the other very small. I lashed out as it
was anything but cheap and ordered one plant from each of these. I should
say that these were both only allowing one per customer.These arrived bare
 After reading all the horror stories about plants not growing the first
year after planting and also not growing at all I was very happy to find
both grew well and flowered in their first season in shade under Japanese
maples, what a delight that was. They continue to grow and flower, they have
not increased very much but I am just happy to have them,I seriously doubt
they have to contend with conditions like ours in their native habitats,we
are in drought still and no sign of relief yet,Water restrictions have been
in force here for a long time and only likely to become more restrictive if
we don't get good rain soon,
