Pretty Face

(Triteleia ixioides) (syn. Brodiaea lutea)

Pretty FaceThis refined plant bears umbels of star-shaped, delicate pale yellow flowers. “I have easily grown this plant for several years in our native alkaline soils. It provides a great bridge from the spring garden to summer,” said Galen Gates, curator of perennial herbaceous plants. “If you want to expand the bulbs you grow, I highly recommend this one for early summer.” Garden visitors will find pretty face in the Bulb Garden.
