    • Hi Amy, Thanks for the observation! Are you referring to petal color or anther color? If anthers, please also submit your data on the page; you can find the link & instructions under the “Submit data” tab above. Thanks again!


  1. The submit data part doesn’t seem to work, or I’m doing something wrong..

    I saw a large colony of trout lilies in Keene, NH today and most had brick red anthers. I’m colorblind so the “brick red” comes from color finding software.

    • Hi, I’m so sorry for my slow response. I’ve been out in the field with the trout lilies most of the time these days. I am sorry you’ve had trouble with the data submission site. If you’re still interested in submitting data, please send me an email (address is on the “Contact”page). Thanks very much.


  2. I am in Burlington Ontario and have been seeing both yellow and orange/red anthers.
    I will try to post to the CitSci site later.


    • Hi! Thank you for the comment.
      I have considered this possibility, but I think it’s unlikely because although the morph distribution within a population is frequently patchy, you can also often find instances of yellow & red-orange morphs growing side-by-side. I think the patchiness is more an outcome of clonal growth, rather than patchy soil composition. Of course, we can’t rule out the possibility entirely without doing some transplant experiments, or growing trout lilies in experimental gardens…. this is tricky because it takes so long to go from seed to flowering plant.
