Anticlea elegans - Wand Lily

Melanthiaceae

Location: Subalpine

Description: Don't eat this. Like its close relative, Toxiscordion, this plant is very poisonous. I mean like jumping in front of a speeding train poisonous. If you're gonna eat wild onions, make sure you smell them. This is found way up high, all the way to timber line.
