I went on a garden tour Friday. Cottage Lake Gardens, Woodenville,WA. This garden hosts 45 of the 47 species of Trillium. This is a beautiful place, a bit past the peek of the bloom season
though. The best time to visit is end of April - First of May. Susie Egan knows Trillium, wow. http://www.cottagelakegardens.com/ Sure was a lot of fun
Now some of my pictures

I have the shrub at the top left, they get 15-20 feet tall and when they bloom as you see they look like they are covered in snow! Doublefile Viburnum 'Shasta'
