Star Field Jill Osier Folks would talk about it, and even after I lived in that mountain town months, a year, even after getting close with the girl from the pharmacy, guys from the woods, I did not know. I waited to somehow divine what it was. Be invited. Still I imagine a great expanse, a meadow, high above the town, of tiny flowers, like lovers on their backs, looking up. #sacredeveryday #outsideeveryday #optoutside #californianaturalist #coastalmeadow #wildflowers #mariposalily #nativeplants #explore #observe #learn #grow #spring #vitaminN #peaceofthewoods #poetry #jillosier

Wildlfower alert! 🏵💕 Came across a decent population of the winding mariposa lily on a recent excursion out to my field sites!!! Its a rare treat to see them in these numbers. Calochortus flexuosus, gets its name because of its spindly twining stem that can wrap around other shrubs. #superbloom #nativeplants @coloradonps #mariposalily

Local rains and a recent trip to Santa Catalina Island allowed for amazing views of #wildflowers and one in particular is the Catalina Island Mariposa Lily. This delicate species is endemic to Southern California and often found in a #symbiotic relationship on the Island with Black Sage (Sativia mellifera) and Coastal Prickly Pear Cactus (Opuntia littoralis). Both larger plants offer the lily protection from large grazers while the bright colored lily #flowers attract pollinators. They stick around from early spring through the beginning of summer. Our local partners and naturalists in training over at the @catalinaconservancy have likely seen more than a few of these seasonal bloomers during this years class. ... #catalinaisland #mariposalily #california #islandecology ... #CalNat grads & naturalists in training: share your inspiration with our community!

Calochortus tolmiei (Liliaceae), Tolmie’s cat’s ear. 4/4. Native nearby and planted. We planted these cat’s ears (which I call mariposa lilies, with my California nomenclature) beyond their native range, which seems to be from the crest of the Coast Range eastward; we’re just west of that. Ours have survived five years in a dry south-facing meadow. #calochortus #calochortustolmiei #liliaceae #phenology #catsear #mariposalily #bulb #nativebulb #naturalizedplant #meadow #gardening #Oregon at Alsea, Oregon

The beautiful babies are all over Ring Mountain right now! I’m leading an iPhone photo walk Wednesday (tomorrow) night. If you are interested, DM me. Here’s an interesting fact about Ring Mountain (from the Marin County Open Space website): The unique geology and microclimate of this location provide a home for a number of rare plants. The soils on the ridge are heavily laced with the mineral serpentine. Soils derived from this mineral are toxic to most plants, but a number of species have evolved mechanisms to survive on serpentine. As a result, where serpentine soils are found, there are usually isolated populations of rare plants. The most extreme example of this phenomenon is the Tiburon Mariposa Lily, which is found on the upper slopes of Ring Mountain, and nowhere else on earth. . . . #ringmountain #marincountyopenspace #mariposalily #spring #wildflowers #marin #hiking #beautifulplaces at Tiburon, California

Mariposa Lily; Es un regalo que nos hace la Naturaleza para recuperar el calor y el abrazo de la madre que nos ha faltado, descubrir el amor incondicional que solo una madre es capaz de ofrecer, descubrir la parte femenina que todos llevamos dentro y desarrollarla en nuestras relaciones. Recuperar el amor por la Madre Tierra y conectarnos con ella, desde el respeto, la sensibilidad, la calidez y el amor. Es una esencia tan especial que equilibra las emociones distorsionadas con la figura materna en la distancia y en las generaciones. @soulpetalsflowers by Dafne Poblete.

Male native bees don't get to sleep in the hive at night with the ladies- they have to find a flower to cozy up in. These ones found a bed in this Calochortus. A rare California native Mariposa Lily. They'll be having some sweet dreams tonight! 🌸🌸🌸 at Santa Paula, California

First Mariposa* bloom of the season, and a weird one for a couple of reasons. (1) Normally the first to bloom here is Calochortus catalinae in late March/early April, whereas this one appears to be C. venustus. This is a second gen bulb so who knows what its source is. (2) C. venustus doesn’t normally bloom here until mid/late April. Maybe it’s the 14” of rain we have had already. (*i.e. excluding C. uniflorus, which got started here in January) #californianativeplants #californiawildflowers #cnps #theodorepayne #nativeplantgarden #casaapocalyptica #calochortus #calochortusvenustus #mariposalily at Mid-City, Los Angeles
