Death camas

These are apparently called Death Camas. Because they're poisonous to livestock and to people. (No poetry here, eh?)

I should mention that I only have names for these bits of flora because staff at the Parks Canada office put together a pamphlet called "Flowers in Bloom Checklist."

It was helpful because my in-car field guides only cover aspen parkland and boreal forest. And short-grass prairie is NOT either of those...
