Yellow Bells ~ Fritillaria pudica


One of the first wildflowers to bloom in the spring after the snow melts, yellow bells grow in dry, loose soil in open woodlands and grasslands.  Meriwether Lewis collected this plant in 1806.  For more information please visit here…IMG_1862-Edit


This lily produces a small bulb, which can be dug up and eaten fresh or cooked. Historically, Native Americans used it as a food source, and are still eaten occasionally.  For more information please visit here…IMG_1871-Edit
