Catalina Mariposa Lily

This white Mariposa Lily is named for Catalina Island, which is across 22 miles of ocean from Los Angeles. This flower only lives on Catalina, some of the other nearby Channel Islands, and also along the immediate coast of the mainland in the vicinity of those islands. They are not common at all. Calochortus catalinae (Lily family)
