Cluster lily (Brodiaea douglasii) - One the most common members of the lily family seen in the shrub steppe. This perennial has a distinctive long stem, which can grow up to 3 feet, an umbel-like cluster of pale to dark blue tube-shaped flowers, and long, grass-like leaves. These features make the cluster lily easy to find. It grows in moderately dry sandy soil and silt-loams, and can be found in grasslands and sagebrush deserts. It blooms from April to July.
