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 very
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.
For another view of this plant, follow this link.

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 maturity
and with an exceptionally wet spring, this species suddenly came into prominent
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.
