Plant Uses: Birds and Wildlife, Edible, Rock Garden, Western Native
A beautiful, drought-tolerant, and edible native of the western United States. 6-16 inch grass-like leaves and a 2-3 foot stem emerge from the edible corms. Up to a dozen violet flowers form round clusters at the top of the stem in the spring. The height they reach is dependent upon their habitat which ranges from grasslands, open slopes, mesas and chaparral. The sweet-tasting corms may be eaten cooked or raw, and the flowers are sometimes used to brighten up salads or deserts. Though typically lavender-violet in color, the flowers also occasionally appear in pink hues.
