A distinctive blue-glaucous perennial, Lomatium nudicaule has compound umbels of small, bright-yellow flowers. It can be a nice, useful addition to the perennial border/wildflower meadow.
In the native habitat it combines wonderfully with the blue flowers of Camassia, pink Plectritis and others…
It was and still is a valuable species for the Native People of BC. The leaves, rich in vitamin C, were consumed as a vegetable and the seeds used as spices and chewed for colds, sore throats and tuberculosis.
Germination: cold/moist stratification.
