A magnificent feature of the open woods and meadows of the mountains; the attractive bunches of grass-like leaves emerge wrapped around a single ground level stalk, these grassy tufts are pretty alone, but the plume-like spikes of lightly-fragrant white flowers are a sight to behold! An important part of the fire ecology in its native habitat of the western United States and Canada, where it thrives after sporadic burns; bear grass foliage was commonly used by the Native Americans for basketry and the roasted root was used as a food source.
