New Mexico Wildflowers: Lily Family



Flowers are organized alphabetically by genus and species. Hover over a photo series to control the images.

Nodding Onion (Allium cernuum)

Some of these images include flower heads held up for photography. Normally, the flower heads are bent over (hence the "nodding" part of the name).


Geyer's Onion (Allium geyeri)

You can see these Geyer's onion flowers nodding in a stiff breeze in a Youtube video of the hike.


Gunnison's Mariposa Lily (Calochortus gunnisonii)


Sego Lily (Calochortus nuttallii)


False Solomon's Seal (Maianthemum racemosum)
