Dear Doug and all,

I enjoyed seeing your picture. Although I have seen this species named as 
you have named it, I have also seen it called Dichelostemma volubile. I 
think that is the preferred name. I've read that even if the stem breaks 
off from the corm it will continue to twine and bloom. Has anyone ever 
tried that?

Blooming now or trying to bloom since it has been raining, raining, raining 
are Dichelostemma capitatum, D. ida-maia, and D. multiflorum.

I started a wiki page for Dichelostemma and added a couple of pictures of 
D. capitatum which is the first to bloom here. Weather permitting others 
will follow.
