I was able to establish Trientalis latifolia
In a peat acid sand bed in South East Michigan. The Trientalis latifolia spread well amongst other plants even when the bed became a hot full sun bed surrounded by gravel when the shade tree overhead died. 

Now in hot humid South Central Kentucky where i saw some Trientalis latifolia came alone for the ride in some of the peat bog beds.

I would be glad to send Lyndon some of the tubers, but I didn't hear of much success when I offered them (at no cost) to people who bought bulbs from me when I was doing bulb sales. It seems to be one of those plants that grows well only where it decides to do so. Perhaps there is some ecological factor it needs.
