This small lily grows from a bulb and has one to several white flowers with petals, sepals and stamens in multiples of three. The hairy-edged petals look like a cat’s ear with a purple “eyebrow” at its base. The erect stem is four to twenty inches tall, with a flat leaf four to eight inches long and three quarter inch wide coming from the base.
