California tiger lily (Lilium pardalinum)

California tiger lily (Lilium pardalinum) is a vibrantly colored wildflower that is both native and endemic to California and the immediately surrounding area. The additional feline references of leopard lily and panther lily are attributable to this plant's bold spots. Its beautiful flower petals are significantly larger and more recurved than those of Sierra tiger lily (L. parvum).
