Kellogg's Lily

Kellogg's Lily
Kellogg's Lily, Lilium kelloggii, is endemic to two counties in northern California and and two in southern Oregon. It can grow to be over six feet tall (2 meters). These were not that tall and were photographed along a forest service road in northern California. You can see the legs of a Crab Spider at the bottom of the flower but I was more interested in the flower than in him.

What a beautiful lily & lovely shot, Ron. Too many crab spiders about in our garden for they're so keen on binding & gagging the bees.

Nice lookinf flower. So did the cereal dynasty pay for the name or was the botanist a relative? ;D

Ron, this Lilium kelloggii, (kol-LOG-ee-eye) is truly one magnificent lily ! Do not know for
whom it was named, though I suspect a member of the Kellogg family. Thanks so much
for bringing this very special flower to us, a masterpiece .
