A member of the lily family, this summer flowering wildflower loves dry open forest, and grows from a perennial, oval shaped clustered bulb that smells strongly of onion. Leaves are long, slender and grass-like; see photo #4. Flowers are pink, bell-shaped and in nodding clusters.
Dry open woods and exposed grassy places, rock crevices and sandy soils, often with Douglas fir; scattered but locally common at low elevations.
We found it growing around our campsite at Lac la Hache Provincial campground just south of 100 Mile House in BC. Very dainty and beautiful.
