We still have those large sheets in various places in upstate NY, and they are indeed stunning to see.  Where trilliums grow undisturbed, they grow very well.  However, even here, where hunting provides significant parts of some people's diet, the deer are making inroads in the trilliums.  Save a trillium - eat venison. :-)
