Wild Lily: L. wigginsii Beane and Vollmer 1955

Formerly known as L. roezlii; received its present name in 1955. It inhabits only a small area in southern Oregon, California, and the Siskiyou Mountains. Thick, scale-covered rhizomes serve as a bulb. The leaves are borne in two to four whorls on a 4-feet tall stem; the horizontal or nodding, pure-yellow, Turk’s Cap flowers are purple-spotted and supported by pedicels 6-12 inches long; stem-rooter; yellow pollen. (RHS-LYB 1957)
