D. capitatum are usually among the first wild flowers to bloom here in southern California. Even in a dry year they'll produce some flowers. I found an unusual form with long rays, almost like a Brodiaea californica in form but with D. capitatum flowers. That's when I finally saw the connection between D. capitatum and D. ida-maia.

I recognize many of these from my former property in the Sierra foothills
of Nevada County, CA.  I always loved the progression of blooms once the
property was reclaimed from the cattle that used to graze there.
