Wood-Lily

This is the first time I’ve ever seen a Wood Lily on Cub Lake Trail in Rocky Mountain National Park. I wonder if it’s because of all of the regrowth from the fire last year. There are many wildflowers that I have never seen on that trail before.

The Wood Lily grows to about 2 feet tall, usually with one solitary flower which is about 4″ across. The flower is open bell-shaped with 6 orange to reddish sepals with purple spots in the center.

We saw quite a few of these lovely wildflowers along the trail, so if you’re hiking up Cub Lake Trail be sure to look for them. You can’t miss their beautiful orange color out in the meadows.

    What a surprising find in the Park! I wonder if the hummingbirds favor them.
