L. superbum, Linn. Hook., Fl. II., 181; Pursh, Fl. I., 230; Macoun Cat, No. 1853.

Rich low grounds, western Ontario. Vicinity of Hamilton, Ont. (Logie.) Moist grounds half a mile west of London, Ont. (Saunders.) A specimen in our herbarium, collected by Dr. Burgess, near London, in 1879, approaches this species very closely, both in its revolute perianth and almost perfectly smooth leaves. Mr. James Fletcher, botanist to the Experimental Farm at Ottawa, has grown Lilium Carolinianum from bulbs purchased in the United States, together with the form here referred to, L. Carolinianum. He believes that our own form is different from both L. Carolinianum and L. Canadense and suggests that Elwes' name should belong to it. It is extremely probable that his view is the correct one.
