    Hi,

    I recently found some trillium growing in my backyard and was wondering some tips to keep it growing and maybe even help it to propagate to fill up more space and maybe even move some of it to the front yard. Your help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks!
    Jayme

    I'd just keep it weeded and mulched, maybe water during dry spells - should respond noticeably to a little rudimentary coddling. Native plants here, of garden-tolerant types (such as trilliums) seem to thrive on being given even just a bit of a helping hand.

    Thanks Ron!

    Just one more small question. I know that Trillium are in the lily family so will it spread easily like lily of the valley and day lilies?
