One of the most brilliant of Sonoran desert wildflowers, the Mariposa lily in one of two common lilies found here — the other is ajo lily (desert lily). Since this is the second recent posting on this desert wildflower, you might guess that I’m quiet taken by this flower.
Although common to the desert southwest, they are scattered and do not bloom every year. These and those in the earlier posting were a few miles apart at about 4,000′ feet elevation.
Aren’t they beautiful!!
