RE: Trilliums ?

I most certainly have the heavy clay and though it is getting better in the
garden beds with proper mulching, it isn't anywhere near light and fluffy
yet.  I may have to wait a few years to try them again, then.  Thanks for
the advice!

   I've found that heavy soil kills them -- if you can put light,
   fluffy organic soil around them they'll fare better.

   I've also had problems with certain species because of the acidity.

   The most forgiving species for me here in East Central Illinois have
   been T. luteum, T. grandiflorum, and T. erectum (in that order).
