Herman and Claire,

You have inspired me to grow more Trilliums. I grow a few mostly for the foliage.

Marc, Trilliums are beautiful plants for shade. They do need sufficient moisture during the growing and flowering season.
They are actually far too little used in gardens.

It is different each year. Here this was a bad year for snowdrops and hellebores, but a good one for Corydalis and also Trilliums, it seems.
It is exciting to see new seedlings flowering for the first time. :)
We have snails, too, but luckily there is not much damage in flowers, yet.

Nice Leena!
By the time they started here it got very dry so the Trilliums were not so happy this year. Yours are very good looking.
I also had a first flower in T. grandiflorum after 4 years, the clump will improve with age :)
The pink is beautiful, I cannot give an opinion on the species.

Herman,

Many of the plants I grow tolorate or even appreciate out long dry Summers. However my small woodland [shade] garden gets year round water.  Sun lovers that need Summer water get drip irrigation.

In nature, T. cuneatum naturally dies back quite early.  But given enough moisture, it will stay green and lovely for most of the season.

Rick, here it is the same. Last year there was enough rain and the leaves stayed fresh longer than this year. This year, the rain was too late, the damage is done.
That is sometimes the unfortunate thing about growing plants, you look forward for a year to see the flower and then dry weather causes disappointment.
