I am not sure the subject Trillium has been found in Ohio but these two bloggers want to believe they have.
The image in the second site that was borrowed is on the Rare Plants website. I do not see anything in any of the discussions that is all that persuasive that what is being shown is a hybrid or that if it is a hybrid that the cross would be for certain erectum x flexipes, especially when the seed parents are of unknown origin as the ones at Rare Plants seem to be.
I have now found at least 3 nurseries listing seedlings of a parent that is purported to be a hybrid of erectum and flexipes...(albeit the descriptions are quite different...) Maybe I am too skeptical?
