What are the distinctions between L. philadelphicum and L. catesbaei? 
And where does L. p. grow? I noted that L. c. grows in the same 
general neck of the woods as Iris lacustris.

Still wondering how anyone could confuse the flakey seed of a lily 
with the granular seed of an iris, but I enjoy surprises and 
mysteries. At least this mystery plant didn't turn out to be 
Nothoscordum inodorum!
