Star Lily Leucocrinum montanum

Also known as sand lily, this beauty is fairly common below 5000 feet in places and climates like Fresno. However, the star/sand lily has also found a home in Washoe Meadows State Park in South Lake Tahoe, the only place in the Tahoe Basin it's known to grow. It's six pearly white petals flare from a long slender tube, the flowers growing close to the ground in clumps of grass-like leaves.
