I received a call from someone wondering whether a yellow (not pale orange) morph of the pine lily (Lilium  catesbaei) is uncommon.  The questioner lives near the route we took on out July roadside botanizing trip in the waycross-Folkston area and has noticed yellow pine lilies along a portion of the route we took.  I have only sen orange ones, so I thought I would post to the group on this.

Thanks in advance for any input.  I will forward anything received to the person who made the inquiry.

Rich,

I don't have any personal experience with it in the field but did find this information on the web today. I'll post 4 links to the different websites and then comment afterward. You may have to copy and paste these links into your web browser.

This is the Florida Plant Atlas site and if you go to plant 8 (Lilium_catesbaei8.jpg) you'll see a picture that is light yellow / white.

Pacific Bulb Society - scroll down until you see a picture labeled: An ananthocyanic (anthocyanic?) form found in the Florida panhandle.

http://www.sunnygardens.com/garden_plants/lilium/lilium_1708.php

Sunny Gardens website showing a cultivated yellow-flowered L. catesbaei: SunnyGardens - Lilium catesbaei 'Tiger Yellow' But, to tell the truth, it doesn't look like L. catesbaei to me.

I believe this is North Carolina State Univ. website and here is the caption: Savannah Lily - Orange / Yellow - Lilium catesbaei var. longii

So, I guess there is something out there that can be almost white or light yellow to really light orange?

Thanks, Richard. 

I did a quick look at the Sunny Gardens one and they do say it is a hybrid - so your impression was correct, it is not L. catesbaei.
