Chocolate Lily

Fritillaria lanceolata (Perhaps) 
I wasn't even aware of this lily until a couple of wildflower hikers pointed it out a few weeks ago in Camas. I saw lots later in the week at Memaloose Trail in Oregon, but they were fading fast at that point. Next year I need to remember to look for them at Memaloose in late April.

One of my very favorite spring wildflowers! They are usually hard to find, but I must have spotted at least a hundred of them on the Memaloose Hills.
