Answer: What a thoughtful idea! I loved trillium as a child, but it doesn't grow where I live now! According to the American Horticultural Society's book, "Plant Propagation," the best time to divide trillium is after flowering. Divide the rhizomes into pieces, each with at least one bud and some roots. They may take some time to reestablish, although this method is faster than sowing seeds. Seed germination is slow and plants take five years to flower. Good luck!
