A bulbous plant with basal clusters of narrow, grass-like, bright green leaves, this is considered among the easiest and showiest of native bulbs! Blue, star-shaped flowers grow in a raceme, and this lovely native wildflower has been known to color entire meadows blue! The bulbs were harvested and pit-roasted or boiled by women of the Nez Perce, Cree, and Blackfoot tribes, and also provided a valuable food source for the members of the Lewis and Clark expedition (1804-1806).
