Tiger Lily

Lilium columbianum
  • Description: Perennial herb with slender stems and whorled leaves, up to 1.2m tall. Showy, nodding flowers are unmistakable in early summer.
  • Habitat: Meadows, thickets, open forests, and clearings.
  • Pair with: Alumroot, thimbleberry, vanilla leaf, cow parsnip, and white fawn lily.
  • Fun Fact: The spotted petals gave rise to a belief that smelling the flower would give one freckles. We have been unable to verify this, but will continue to try!
