Desert Lilly

Desert Lilly, Hesperocallis undulata; Anza Borrego, California. The desert is ablaze with flowers including Sand Verbena, Brown-eyed Evening Primrose, and Arizona Lupine. There were also a few Desert Lillies interspersed between the blaze of yellow and lavender wildflowers, the sparkling white flowers really standing out. It's hard to imagine these plants growing out in the middle of the dry desert sand, given their water-loving cousins that most of us are more familiar with. That just makes it all the more amazing and exciting to see!
