This once common flower to the Willamette Valley is now extremely rare. A small population was discovered in a local field following extensive earthmoving. We know the history of the field and believe this population was likely buried deep and laid dormant for many decades before being released. We collected a few of the seed pods and are working on propagating them for eventual seed sales. We love this flower and would enjoy seeing it throughout the valley again.
