Fringed Corn Lily Leaves – a rare Mendonoma plant

On a neighbor's property is a beautiful mass of rare plants - Fringed Corn Lilies. They are growing alongside year round water, as Frank and Nan's land has springs close to the surface. These large, handsome leaves don't give a clue about the flower to come in the fall. By the time it does flower, the leaves are brown and torn. I will make a point to photograph the beautiful white flower stalks later this year. This plant is endemic to the Mendocino and Sonoma Coast and considered an ESHA - environmentally sensitive habitat.

    I am located in Welches, Oregon and have several bunches of these on my property. We have natural springs on the property. and we are very moist up here. is it ok to sell these or are they restricted as we have many growing wild.
