i have mine in heavy shade by the side of the house under my pink camellia tree and it's very happy there. nice ground cover that bobble in the breeze for a few months.

This is a threatened/endangered species over much of its range here....I always feel very lucky to see wild trilliums!

i didn't know that, this one is not as popular here as the grandiflorum white variation but i like the dark red / maroon and the mottling on the leaves.

they are a nice plant for the shade yes and then they can spread till their hearts content.
