Although sold as T.sessile, I'm pretty sure they're not. The first to emerge in my garden every year, I believe these are T. angustipetalum. Mainly from their earlier emergence than others I am fairly sure are T. kurabayashii, and from the longer slender petals.
I will post a picture of my Trillium kurayashi, when they get to flowering. As yet they are four inches high, just beginning to unfurl and some way from looking like John's picture. Comparisons please.
Flowering two-three weeks later than your posting. This plant was bought as T.kurabayashii and the petals are certainly wider than in the first picture. This is growing in a wood, at 170m asl, on a SW facing slope in the south Midlands. Other comparisons please.
