Lomatium nudicaule (barestem biscuitroot)
A broader-leaved lomatium
This perennial grows in the Columbia gorge but doesn’t reach into our area. The leaves are smooth and mostly basal. Leaflets are ovate to somewhat rounded and have a bluish-white waxy coating, making a distinctive basal cluster of leaves. Each flower stem bursts into a number of bare stems bearing a ball of bright yellow flowers. Probably needs at least a little supplemental water here. Photo by Ben Legler.
NOTE: will be dormant and pot may look empty, but the roots have been checked and look healthy.
Height: probably 8-20″ in our area
Width: probably 8-12″
Water: low to moderate
