Wildflower: Glacier Lily

Glacier lily (Erythronium grandiflorum), also sometimes identified as deer tongue, is a member of the lily family. As the widow grass at Sumpter’s corner of Climax and Auburn was finishing up in the third week of April (2013), the deer tongue were showing up. That corner’s a bit sunny and dry, though, and the flower does better in a shadier, cooler meadow setting.
