Description

The ookow is found in open places in woods and meadows in northern California and several other western states and Canada. It grows as a small clump of grass-like leaves which expands with each growing season. The spring flowers appear as a cluster atop a long stock. The color is typically lavender but can range from white to purple. Ookow is adaptable to a variety of soil types and tolerates some shade. It must be kept dry after flowering as ookow begins to disappear for the summer. Summer water will rot the bulb.
