Daniela,

T. Cuneatums grow in heavy clay on limestone mountainsides and valleys here
in north Alabama.
Our wildflower and trillium beds are mostly leaf mulch with some sand.
Cuneatums grow well in the woods but grow "great" in the leaf mulch and sand
beds.

I like cuneatums for their many color variations  and different leaf
patterens.  Another common and underrated T. is the old "twisted" Stamineum.
It also has great viriations in petal and sepal color and leaf patterns.

Gool luck.....
