Pale or deep blue, narrowly bell-shaped flowers bloom in an umbel at the top of a leafless stem that has one or two grass-like basal leaves.
The ruffled, petal-like segments make this flower unusual. Howell's Triteleia, (T. howelii), from southern British Columbia to northern Oregon near the Cascade Mountains, has much shorter flower stalks and only slightly ruffled petal-like segments that vary from white to blue.
