(Species / Wild Lily)
An alpine native of the Sierra Nevada and Oregon Cascades, the small, semi-erect flowers of Lilium parvum can be found in yellow, orange, or red depending on elevation of the colony. Provided it receives a well drained garden site, with damp, sandy soils, it will grow quite well. Usually found in areas of damp, snowbed sites, it likes ample water in the spring to simulate snow melt.
