Leichtlins Mariposa Lily — Calochortus leichtlinii
Calochortus forever. Mariposa Lilies are varied and beautiful. I’ve seen over ten species of them this year, from calochortus tiburonsis which only grows on one hill, to this gorgeous mariposa lily from Yosemite. This almost looks like it has three petals, but the other three (all lilies have 6) are tiny but present.
