wet soil quenches not
Damp soil pine flatwoods are such a special place and this is where I usually see Catesby lily growing en masse. Catesby lily flower is one of the largest lily flowers native to North America. Brilliant hues of orange, yellow and red attract a number of pollinators to the top of stems reaching up above wiregrass below. Pineland lily is truly an amazing Florida native wildflower.
