Also in my garden, usually the large-flowered trilliums do not coincide with snowdrops.

Wow! already?!
T. nivale is very early by nature but I didn't know T. chloropetalum and ovatum can also flower so early in the spring.

Chloropetalum and kurabayashii have begun flowering here too, and rivale is next.  I don't keep records but think this may be slightly earlier than usual.

Herman, Trilliums really seem to like it in your garden and grow so well.

Mariette, that is a very nice colour of Trillium. :)

Thank You Leena, just a happy find among seedlings.

Today the first Trillium kurabayashii startet to flower.

Thank you Maggi, interesting article.

It is, isn't it.  Beautiful photographs too.

I was interested to read that '... old clumps may have two or three stems each season', rather than the bigger clumps sometimes shown here and elsewhere. 
Do plants usually bulk up more under garden conditions or rather are these big clumps normally groups of separate individuals?

In my garden, this depends on the clone. Some bulk very quickly whereas a nice green-flowered Trillium chloropetalum I grow doesn´t develop more than three flowers since many years, for instance. Most of the hybrids clump well, the parents of this one were given as Trillium sessile ´Rubrum´ and albidum, the former being a somewhat doubtful name.

Trillium kurabayashii generally clumps well in my garden.
