The Star Lily is a large robust native that thrives in chaparral habitats, but not on serpentine soils. Another common name for it is Fremont's Death Camas as well as Star Zigadene in reference to its old name. The long strap leaves all start at the base. They have six petals (strictly, three petals and three very similar sepals), arranged symmetrically, giving rise to the name Star Lily.
