Canada lily

Lilium canadense

The flowers of this species are large orange-red trumpets that hang facing downward.  There are one to five flowers at the top of the plant with petals that curve backward, but not as far as its close relative, Turk’s-cap lily. The large, brilliant flowers of this lily attract many pollinators such as Speyeria cybele, great spangled fritillary and various swallowtail butterflies.  Ruby-throated hummingbirds also visit the flowers.  Warning: These plants are highly attractive to deer!\
