Death Camas (Toxicoscordion venenosum, previously Zygadenus venenosus)
Liliaceae ~ Lily Family
Often overlooked, this poisonous relative of the
common blue edible camas has smaller more numerous flowers,
with lovely yellow nectaries at the base of each of the perianth
segments. It often grows with camas in meadows and swales; native
americans were thought to have weeded these plants out of the
meadows that they tended for camas harvest.
