OUTDOORS For the CCW The chocolate lily is a familiar sight to us Southeastern Alaskans who roam about the duck flats and saltwater shorelines or hike the freshwater riverbanks at the time of their summer bloom. This wild lily has purple-brown flowers and beautifully contrasting yellow anthers with a green stigma. It can grow up to around two feet tall here.
