Associated with mountainous pinelands, these beautiful small lilies look a lot like wild onions but that's where the similarity ends. They are found in almost all of the western American states except Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico and reach the northernmost point of their range in Canada's British Columbia. These were found growing on a steep slope among some ponderosa pines on the eastern side of Washington's Cascade Mountains near Ellensburg.
