Ithuriel's Spear blooming in Gualala
Its bloom is just about over but I wanted to share this beautiful member of the Lily family - Ithuriel's Spear, Triteleia laxa. This particular plant is growing next to a neighbor's fence. Bees and butterflies visit this flower often. It's a California native and it grows from a corm, which is edible.
