Calochortus leichtlinii--The Subalpine Mariposa Lily


C.leicht400x528  C.leicht400x453

The elegant Calochortus leichtlinii. On the left it can be seen in its three stages, bud, bloom and seed pod. This flower never looks better than when it first opens up at the beginning of day in its porcelain-like beauty.


 Sublime beauty in every part, and when fully open, near perfection in delicate simplicity of form and color.
