David,
The diversity is truly intersting.  Several are unique----- 1 in 
populations of 100-1000.  Many are from  the diversity in a single 
population that was being distroyed. Freeman is quoted as saying this 
sulcatum population is the most diverse he had seen.  There were no other 
pedicellate Trillium species near these populations. Others were donated 
without any knowledge.
