Now that I am looking for more Lilium michiganense, I'm noticing that where pictures are provided the flowers have a very variable quantity of spots. The one I was given only has spots from the inner two thirds - the rest of the petal is that lovely unspotted red/orange. I'm wondering if the wild populations of this lily are as variable.
