Dimpled Trout Lily
Very rare in this location in South Georgia, this small patch of trout lilies is listed as endangered, and has survived in this location for thousands of years. It is believed that a rare set of circumstances has allowed this colony to persist while the surrounding environment has changed over the centuries. This area still retains the same soil and climate conditions this entire region once shared millennia ago and is now found much further to the north in the Appalachian Mountains.
