This plant is on the endangered species list of COSEWIC (Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada).
Lilium canadense, commonly called either the Canada Lily or the Meadow Lily, is a native of eastern North America. The plant grows up to 1.5 meters high. Flowers emerge in June, and are nodding, yellow, orange or red, with spots. The plant has become less common in urban and suburban areas due to heavy browsing by the white-tailed deer.
The root system consists of a scaly corm with fibrous roots. This wildflower reproduces by seed or from offsets of the corms.
