    • I love the Trilliums. I will attempt to move one if I can… I don’t think they take kindly to a change of location though… not so sure about that.

    • Sorry to give the wrong impression, but I’m selling a house I was renting. I already made the move nearly five years ago. I look forward to not having to deal with the rental situation.

    • Actually, most of the change took place nearly five years ago. I just recently decided I didn’t want to deal with renting the old house and am getting it shined up to sell.

I’ll have to see if I can figure out how to do a “division” to plant at my current house. They grow in wooded areas around the west as far as I know. The first one I ever saw in California (in the Sierra foothills) was a gorgeous dark plum shade.

  1. I waited for other comments as I didn’t know what the plants are. Now I understand and would heartily agree. We have stinging nettles here which look a little different but sure hurt! The trillium is pretty. Moving can sometimes be a strange affair, bringing up a few emotions. Often you can be too busy to really notice them until much later when you finally have some time to sit and think.

    • Our Poison Oak causes truly intense itching that is literally unbearable, though some folks seem to be immune. Sorry to give the wrong impression, but I’m selling a house I had rented. I already made the move nearly five years ago. I look forward not having to deal with the rental situation.

    • It’s a wild Trillium (yes, a type of lily) and I understand they don’t transplant well. They may even be endangered. Then again, you had me googling and it looks like you can propagate by division. Hmmm, I’ll have to look into this once the house is ready to list. Thanks for the suggestion.

  2. They’re both new to me…very pretty in the first…and I was going to suggest poison oak for the second…..never had the misfortune of makings its acquaintance.
