Orange Lilium

Orange Lilium
Bleed under mat

Artist: John Crittenden


This is a native flower from southern Canada through much of the United States. "Lilies are an important group of flowering plants and are important in culture and literature in much of the world. Most species are native to the temperate northern hemisphere, though their range extends into northern subtropics. Many other plants have "lily" in their common name but are not related to true lilies." I can remember driving northwest from Calgary into the foothills just to pick a beautiful bouquet of these flowers. - John Crittenden

About This Series

I've heard some say that flowers don't bloom at night. But, similar to many animals and birds who live much of their lives in both worlds, I've come to realize that they certainly do. Nature keeps to her own timetable and at night everything seems to "come alive" more than even during the day. While many flowers will close up after the sun sets, perhaps for protection, I've seen several that stay open for an hour or so after it gets completely dark. Some even bloom all night. - John Crittenden
