I think some of the west coast Trillium would do just fine for you, given a
little extra irrigation. Trillium chloropetalum and Trillium albidum have
persisted for a very long time in clay soil under coast live oak at UC
Botanical Garden in the Berkeley hills, where they get something like 25
inches of rainfall a year, plus some extra irrigation to fill in the gaps,
but I let them dry out in the heat of late summer / early fall. The leaves
last longer, and the plants look better with more irrigation.
