This yellow lilium was growing by a one room schoolhouse along with fulva that is long since gone from Shilo Corner. The schoolhouse was pulled down long before we moved here and the flowers were dug up by road crew. All that remains are the old oak trees and swing set remnants that we played on. When we were little two of the neigborhood boys dug some up and gave to Mom in the late 1960's. The rest is all gone.

Try some of these internet pages. That's a lovely photo, by the way.

Here is a link that might be useful: Google hits for 'Lilium canadense'

Thank you! It did grow in a wet meadow right before the school area and red wing blackbirds were there nesting. I went back to the spot and there are some fulva the road crew missed taking over the area again and it seems to still be somewhat wet. I did not find these lilium there but they might be. Mine are getting past the showy stage and grow in a raised bed under the pine trees with partial sun but I do water. There are not many but they have multiplied.

Thanks again for the link solved a problem over a yellow viola too.
