Red Pine Lily - in the wild
Found this (Lilium catesbaei) growing down in the wet bottom.
Took the photo last month, the show lasted a week or so.
Needless to say I was very happy with this find.
It was blooming in two places, about 100' apart.
I've had this land 20yrs, they have never bloomed until now.
They are now getting more light, since Hurricane Katrina. In addition, I got in there afterwards, chain saw in hand, then followed up with several low intensity burns over the past 5yrs.
Voila, conditions are right.
