This includes Brodiaea, Triteleia, Dichelostemma, Bloomeria, and a few others.  Closely related bulbs from the
Western USA, they all produce flowers in an umbel, and are ideally suited to the wild garden, or planted with
grasses in a wildflower meadow.  Easy and undemanding, most members of the Brodiaea Group need a dryish
summer rest.  If you live in the West, these should be in your garden.   Zone  7-10.
