Mariposa Lily

Calochortus macrocarpus

This lily is a wildflower that grows in our vineyards, and thus provides the name for our Estate grapes.

Mariposa Lilies belong to the genus Calochortus, and form a subgroup with upright, open flowers. Like other members of the lily family, calochortuses have three petals and three sepals, but the sepals are much smaller than the petals, in contrast to lilies, fritillaries, and fawn lilies.
