Lomatium triternatum (nineleaf biscuitroot)
Adds a yellow sparkle to a native grass setting
This delicate-looking biscuitroot creates a sparkle in native grasslands, where it’s yellow blossoms are scattered up among the tops of the grasses. Most of the leaves emerge from the bulb and are divided into 3 leaflets that are further cleft into long narrow segments. Flowers are small tight clusters at the end of stems forming a flat-topped inflorescence that bloom in April and May in our area. Perennial. Photo by Marilyn Lemar
