Spectacular spikes of flowers ranging in tones from bright pink to sultry scarlet make Dichelostemma a must-have in the gardening world.
This delightfully dainty wildflower, sometimes called firecracker plant, is native to the American Northwest, with a high concentration in northern California.
Growing from hardy corms and blooming in late spring, each impressive flower spike reaches 16-25" tall with up to 8 tubular blooms per stem. Surrounding the charming flowers is an array of narrow, grass-like foliage, which sprouts early in the season and disappears as the blossoms open.
You won't be the only one admiring these dependable Northwest natives; they're also highly attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds!
