The most recent issue of Fremontia included an article about the Lemon Lily which was penned by none other than one of our festival’s progenitors: botanist Kate Kramer. This issue was focused on Geophytes which are plants that survive part of their annual life cycle as a dormant, fleshy underground structure. Types of geophytes include bulbs, corms, tubers, tuberous stems, tuberous roots, rhizomes and pseudobulbs.
