In early summer, Dichelostemma congestum has a compact ball of long lasting lilac-purple flowers two-to-three inches across on a 24 inch stem with two or three grassy leaves at the base. Its flower looks similar to the head of an Allium. Dichelostemma congestums are native to the west coast and grow naturally in open, grassy areas. It works well as a cut flower, but watch the sap as it can be irritating to some. Since it is a native it is very drought tolerant and actually prefers no summer water. Ookow looks ideal in combination with sun loving grasses and other bulbs.
