This is a beautiful wild flower and one of the very earliest flowers. The season for them is short so if you want to see them its time to visit.
If you plan to photograph most of the Ozark wildflowers in the Buffalo River Region you will have to get out a few times. Some like this lily only hang around a few weeks at most. You can stretch your visits by checking out different venues. Another outstanding wildflower venue is Smith Creek Preserve just south out of Boxley Valley.
Other good venues are the Mill Creek trail in Pruitt, the loop trails at Tyler Bend, and the Overlook trail at Buffalo Point. Call the rangerfor specific advice, they will be glad to show you where wildflowers are in the middle and lower Buffalo National River areas.
