Description

Western false asphodel is a sweet and dazzling perennial wildflower that inhabits moist meadows, bogs, and streambanks at mid to high elevations in the mountains. It is also known by the common names sticky tofieldia or sticky asphodel because of the sticky, glandular stems. Grass-like leaves arise from basal tufts, with 6″-1′ flowering stems growing from short rhizomes. The cute white flower clusters are formed in a spike-like raceme. In the fall the white flowers turn to very showy, brightly colored red seedpods that stand out in late-season meadows. Perfect for a moist and sunny garden. Native to the western United States. Triantha is a small genus in the False asphodel (Tofieldaiaceae) family. Attractive to pollinators.
