Fire Lily

The Fire Lily (Lilium bulbiferum) is found not infrequently in the mountainous part of the territory. It has very showy flowers that are surpassed in size among native plants only by those of the rare peony. The leaves are narrowly lanceolate and verticillate around the stem. At the insertion of the leaves there may be bulbils that allow the plant to spread asexually. In the territory, however, only the subspecies Lilium bulbiferum ssp. croceum is present, which usually has no bulbils. Vincetoxicum hirundinaria can also be seen on the photo.
