Calochortus tolmiei

Common Name: Cat's Ear

It has been very rewarding developing some of the lesser Willamette Valley forbs into commercial crops, like the Catís ear. In late spring and early summer foliage is followed by extremely fuzzy, white or pale pink flowers. Ample winter rainfall with sparse summer irrigation is best. Low growing to 4 in. Little blossoming size bulbs. Key nectar species for Fenders Blue Butterfly and Taylor's Checkerspot.
