    Looks like a Fritillaria to me. Is it a garden escape or a native? I don't know.

    I think it is Fritillaria too, but what sp.? It was next to path along the forest &University Dr. It can be garden escape, it was lots of them, small and not so suitable for gardens...

    How I can see if this restoration planting or not? The pink dot, somewhere in this area.

    If it isn't immediately obvious that it is a purposeful planting of native platns to recreate the flora of an area, then they've either done a very good job or it isn't!

    It could be Fritillaria affinis, I suppose. It is a bit of a lighter colour than one would normally see as they fade, but there is a fair bit of colour variation. Plus, I'm not certain of the amount of glare from sun reflecting off the tepals.
