Chocolate Lilies ( Fritillaria camshatcensis) is a species of the fritillary. Chocolate Lilies are wild flowers and are native to northeastern Asia, including northern Japan, Mamchatika, and eastern Siberia, and western North America, from Alaska to Oregon. The Chocolate Lily is one of many known common names throughout it’s native zones.

The plant’s roots are a starchy tuber, similar to potato. Grizzly Bears often dig them up as a source of food. The tubers were also a source of food for the Indigenous people of the northern Pacific Rim, before the introduction of Western diets. In 2012 there was a small movement to revive the use of the plant in British Columbia by the West Coast First Nations.
