Wild Lily: L. shastense (Eastw.) Beane 1955

Native to the American counties of Plumas, Shasta and Siskiyou; named after Mount Shasta in Siskiyou Comity, where it grows in rich profusion. Looks like a diminutive L. harrisiatiutn. L. shastense has strongly reflexed, cadmium-yellow flower petals with cadmium-red to sienna-brown tips – but these darker colours spread over the whole bloom as it matures; ochrc-yellow pollen. One or more stems, bearing linear to

lanceolate leaves arranged in whorls, rise from scale-covered rhizomes. (RHS-LYB 1957)
