Here in southern Europe D irioides is common and easy to get. It naturalises 
in  certain  positions. Half or full shade it make a lot of seed.  D. 
grandflora a much bigger and more attractive plant,  is much harder to find 
and needs milder conditions. D. bicolor once established,  makes  (in full 
sun) impressive  borders or haies and becomes un interesting garden feature.
