Sego Lily

Natural History

The Sego Lily is a member of the Lily Family. The plant grows to 20 inches in height and can be found on dry mesas, in open pine forests and on hillsides between 5000 - 8000 feet in elevation. Leaves grow to 4 inches in length and are green, narrow and curved up at the edges.

The Sego Lily is the state flower of Utah, though this one was photographed in the Grand Canyon.

The Sego Lily blooms between May - July and produces a tulip-like flower with 3 white to lavender petals with a yellow base.
