Blossoms of the Brodiaea

The brodiaea is another wild plant Mr. Burbank has brought into the garden, and which he is educating with an eye to both its blossoms and its bulb. Some of the wild brodiaeas are edible, and Mr. Burbank expects to improve on their qualities through hybridization and selection. Some rather notable first steps in this direction have already been taken. It will be seen that the brodiaea has an interesting, even if not a very spectacular flower.
