July is good time to notice the Wood Lily in dry, open woodlands of our area. Different shapes and positions of flower heads attract different pollinators. It is believed that the conspicuous, open, upright flower of the Wood Lily is ideally suited to pollination by butterflies. In the past, the bulbs of this wildflower were gathered by Native Americans for food. This species may have declined because of the suppression of forest fires, which once helped maintain the fairly open under story which they require. A favorite browse item, Wood Lily is affected by deer, especially where an overpopulation occurs. This speciman was found recently on the western slope of Mt Belknap.
