Calochortus albus

White Fairy Lantern


White Globe Lily

Closely related to the Mariposa Lily this plant was a favorite food of California Indians, who ate the bulbs roasted or steamed, and the ate the dried seeds.

Take care if you do eat the bulb to ensure that you replace it with seeds or small bulblets, for conservation purposes.
