These Naked Lady or Bella Donna flowers are so beautiful, I love them. I never saw them growing up in Trinity County and only began to notice them mainly in Marin County. Some appeared in my Mother’s yard these past few years, volunteers. They moved from one side of the yard to another this year.
Allium triquetrum is the name of the flower or wild onion.
I am very fond of this wild flower which is actually more known as a weed. It grows in most the valley areas of northern California, and the name is Allium triquetrum or as I like to say, wild onion. A friend once told me this, and I always think of her when I see these pretty flowers, which I believe are edible onions too. But I would be careful where I get them from.
