Glacier Lily, Trout Lily, Fawn Lily, Snow Lily
The snow is still melting when large clusters of Yellow Avalanche Lily start to carpet mountain slopes and meadows in the foothills and mountains of northwestern Canada and the United States.
1-3 flowers dangle from a curving stalk (6-12 in high) with 2-3 large fleshy leaves (up to 14 in) at the base of the plant. The 6 yellow petals curve backwards exposing the stigma and anthers.
