Range: Find this native perennial in Alaska's Kodiak Island down through Vancouver Island to British Columbia and southern coastal Washington where they have been seen in Snohomish, King, and Whatcom counties and rarely on Camano Island in Island County. In years past they are reportedly seen in San Juan County.
Habitat: This plant likes to be close to bodies of water from lakes and streams to damp meadows, different types of marshes, and bogs, either in shady evergreen wetlands to deciduous areas as long as there is plentiful moisture from near tide flats to mountain meadows. This assortment of suitable environs gives this lily a better chance of survival than do other, more picky natives.
Classed as "sensitive" in Washington, current threats include timber harvest, trampling, hydrologic changes, and collecting.
