|Easter Lily is it's Misnomer||< BACK|
White Fawn Lily (Erythronium Oregonum) can be also called Easter Lily, but it is a misnomer. With fewer & fewer places to see a spring display of wild white fawn lilies, it becomes increasingly more important to save places where this outstandingly beautiful native plant can still exist.
With a nodding white flower, delicate thin stems and glossy base of broad, ripple-edged mottled leaves the White Fawn Lily can be found through March, April and early May, carpeting the dry open lowland forests of eastern & southern Vancouver Island, in Garry Oak ecosystems which are under threat from invasive species, urban sprawl and other development.
This lovely native lily always makes my day!
