Golden fairy lantern (Calochortus amabilis)
The golden fairy lantern (Calochortus amabilis) is an attractive wildflower that is both native and endemic to California. Also known as Diogenes' lantern, golden globelily and short lily, this showy perennial herb is very similar to the white fairy lantern (C. albus), but is set apart by its bright yellow flowers.
