Doubting Mariposa Lily

A couple of my Flagstaff friends had identified this as a Sego Lily but because of deeper color in the center and the elevation where we saw it, I didn’t think so. We put our heads together with some experts on higher elevation plants and found out I was right to question it. It is a Doubting Mariposa Lily as I thought. Cool 🙂

    I had the same experience in the Sierras at about 8000 ft elevation – I photographed what I thought was a Sego Lily but my wildflower book for the Sierras identified it as Mariposa.
