This tough, easy to grow native bulb is a common sight in Oak forests around the Bay Area. Bright green foliage begins to appear around December, eventually forming a large mound. Delicate wands of small white flowers appear at the end of spring, and only open around dawn and dusk. Bulb goes dormant soon after, reappearing larger the following year.
