Mystery Flower

laura228July 19, 2009

We found this pretty flower growing in one of our hay fields. It was so pretty and the hay field will be mowed soon, so today we dug it up and planted it at our house. We were really surprised at how big it is - taller than my 5 year old son! Does anyone know what kind of flower this is? We hope it does well in its new location.

Hi Laura!

Perhaps it is Lilium canadense?
