Hi all, does anyone recognize this? Is it some type of lily? or a species tulip? I found it in Seattle's arboretum today!

This is what the inside of the flower looks like

Whatever it is it is beautiful! I tip my hat to you.
Thanks

I agree
around here the common name is dog tooth violet
I have no idea why because they do not look like a violet at all Shrug!

Too dry here for it to do well, but I like it. Thumbs up
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

Thanks all - it really is amazing - in the photos you cannot tell but it stands about 1.5 feet and the leaves look to be about a foot long, so a very good sized plant!!
Cheers

This is in the arboretum so I can't imagine its a cultivar, with the ground covers and flowers they try to keep it natural. But if they don't grow this large in the wild than I guess it isn't natural forming!
You IDers are good! I wasn't sure people would know what they were and you all ID'd it right away!
Thanks again! I tip my hat to you.
