I would love some Kathleen.  I am in northern California not far from 
where they grow (although I have never seen them in the wild).

> My Trillium kurabayashi plants flowered for the first time, and set seed this year. Dozens per pod. Many more seeds than I can use. The seeds that became these plants came from NARGS about 8 years ago, and all plants have dark red flowers and well mottled leaves. My question is this:  is there enough interest in growing this species among PBSers to send the extra seeds to the seed exchange?
