bridgesii & Brodiaea purdyi
Triteleia bridgesii - here are two views of this very beautiful two-toned "Trit". The forms
shown here were obtained as bulbs from the late Jim Robinett, and have proven to be
reliable, showy native bulbs growing here in my New England garden. The
flower heads in
June, and into July, are impressively large, yet on stems only a little
more than a foot.

Brodiaea purdyi ( two photos
Brodiaea purdyi is a very small plant native to
California. It has proved reliably hardy,
yet slow growing. This past spring (2003), with adequate number of years
and with an exceptionally wet spring, this species suddenly came into
highlight. Demure, to be sure, but very pretty with lots of violet
purple flowers on
stems 4"-6" tall, flowering for a long period in June and July.
