This western native may be found in open woods, meadows and grassy slopes from sea level up to 6,500 feet. Bees and butterflies are attracted to the bright purple inflorescences of 6-20, 1cm wide and long flowers. The edible bulbs were cooked in underground ovens and eaten, or processed and made into breads or cakes. The delightful, allium-like flowers are notable for their forked filaments and creamy-white ribs which offset the petals.
