Made to order- each is unique!
Camping in beautiful Wyoming one year, I discovered these beautiful flowers in full bloom. I found out they were Sego Lilies, and have since seen them all over Colorado as well. Turns out, they’re also edible! now I want to try them!
“Native Americans had culinary uses for the bulbs, seeds, and flowers of the plant. Bulbs were roasted, boiled, or made into a porridge by the Hopi, Havasupai, Navajo, Paiute, Gosiute, and Ute peoples. The Hopi used the yellow flower ceremonially.
They taught the Mormon pioneer immigrants to use the bulb for badly needed food. This resulted in the sego lily being formally designated as the Utah State Flower in 1911”
