Blue Dicks is a California Native Plant which is also edible.

The California Native Wildflower season has officially begun on the Humboldt Trail in upper, Upper Bidwell Park.

"Dichelostemma capitatum, a monocot, is a perennial herb that is native to California and is also found outside of California, but is confined to western North America."

"Corms have been gathered by Native Americans in California, parts of the Great Basin, and the Southwest. These corms were an important starch source in their diet. California tribes dug and continue to dig the corms before flowering, during flowering, or after seeding depending on the tribe and individual family. Traditional gathering sites were visited annually, and there were gathering tracts with different kinds of corms and bulbs owned and maintained by particular families."
