Flora of North America: Dichelostemma venustum, the rose firecracker flower, may be a hybrid between D. ida-maia and D. congestum or D. multiflorum. It is intermediate in perianth tube length and color (pink), and gynophore length (L. W. Lenz 1971; G. Keator 1991, 1993b). It is restricted to relatively mesic habitats of northwestern California and southwestern Oregon.
