Mariposa Lilies

Mariposa Lilies, Calochortus sp., are one of my favorite flowers to find while I'm out hiking and exploring. Please add any photos that you have taken of these pretty blooms!

The genus name Calochortus is from the Greek calos, "beautiful," and chortos, "grass." Click here for more info from the USDA Plants Database.
