Recent work from the Wild Things series, as I continue to investigate and interpret botanical forms. Corn Lilies (Veratrum californicum) are native perennials that grow in moist meadow lands of the Eastern Sierras and are found in several western states. Although considered poisonous, these plants contain a unique alkaloid that has been used in clinical trials to treat certain forms of cancer, by inhibiting the hedgehog signaling pathway.
