(Species / Wild Lily)
Named for Sarah Ann Pitkin, owner of the property this lily was discovered on in 1952. Once carrying “species” status, it is more than likely a hybrid population as both in the Pitkin Marsh and in the cool greenhouse, they show a great deal of variation in height, flower color and size, as well as period of bloom.
