Wow!  eek.gif

Just eleven surviving populations, nearly driven to extinction by human development.  Very nice!

A few more. This population has expanded since our last visit two years ago. We were traveling last year so missed bloom.

I'd appreciate plant identification help. This plant was at about 5,700' on Tyler Peak, Buckhorn Wilderness last week. So many wildflowers were in full bloom and while we could identify most, we are drawing a blank on this one. Thanks for the help.

Allium cernuum or nodding onion - notice the one that is bent down just behind.

Sorry gb, definitely not Allium cernuum.  I have it growing in my yard, the flowers are light pink and do not nod until they are open, the opposite of what is shown here where the flower stalks straighten as they open.  This plant is not an Allium, but I am still working on the ID.

Thanks gb and Sculpin. I agree it is not Allium cernuum (this grows in our yard and doesn't go through a phase like this) and maybe is not an Allium at all.

Sculpin - I hope you are successful as other plant savvy folks haven't yet identified it. Maybe this will require a second trip to see the bloom. Thanks again.

How is it that you have ruled out the Allium genus? It looks like Allium crenulatum or Olympic onion. The buds haven't completely opened. https://www.pnwflowers.com/flower/allium-crenulatum/gallery/0405286

Allium crenulatum does not go through a phase that matches this bloom. For comparison I looked at the Burke Herbarium website. Also, the leaves were as long as 10-12". This plant reminds me of a bromeliad, which it isnt.

I don't think it is A. crenulatum either for the same reason, I can find no images where the flowers are hidden in big purple bracts.  It may be an allium but it looks like a different type of monocot to me.

I went nuclear on this one.  I sent the image to David Giblin.  There will hopefully be an answer shortly.

Anticlea occidentalis opens like that according to my images. It also has long linear lanceolate leaves. This would be in the wet area.

A. acuminatum seems to lose it's leaves prior to flowering.

Belowfellow - Thanks, you are right. It is Anticlea elegans, death camas! The early stage of development threw me off.
