Ithuriel’s Spear blooming in Gualala

Its bloom is just about over but I wanted to share this beautiful member of the Lily family - Ithuriel's Spear, Triteleia laxa. This particular plant is growing next to a neighbor's fence.  Bees and butterflies visit this flower often. It's a California native and it grows from a corm, which is edible.

  1. Funny, that same flower sent me to the botany books about a month ago when I saw it blooming on Open Space in the Novato area. Truly a beautiful wild flower.

    BTW, my word verification for this post was "dumshe."
