Washington Lily (Lilium washingtonianum)
Dickey Creek Trail, Bull of the Woods W.A., Oregon, 7/2012.
These Easter lily look-alikes have a number of aliases including “Mt. Hood lily,” “Shasta lily,” “Santiam lily,” and “Cascade lily.” Despite the name, these only occur south of the Columbia River. The white petals turn pink as they age. To say this flower is fragrant is an understatement.
Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. –Matthew 6: 28-29
