Clasping Twistedstalk


This very aptly named lily is easily identified by the kink in the flower stem and the leaf clasping the stalk. Other quite similar lilies are the False Solomon's Seal which has a white plume of small white flowers at the top of an arching stem and the Hooker's Fairybells with white bell-shaped flowers at the end of the branch. All grow in moist forests and reach about 1m in height. This plant was photographed on the nature trail at Cypress Bowl Provincial Park.
