The caption read:

Calochortus macocapus or Green-banded Mariposa Lily survives in the arid interior of the Pacific Northwest. Its delicate flower blooms on a 1 to 2 feet tall plant, one that is unfortunately endangered from heavy grazing by livestock. Called "sweet onion" by Native Americans, the crisp sweet bulbs were historically dug in the spring before flowering and eaten raw or added as flavor in cooking.

The caption read:

Lilium columbianum, a Tiger Lily, can be found in abundance in the summit meadow on Mary's Peak. The Tiger Lily has a range from southern British Columbia to northern California and east to Idaho and Nevada. The distinguishing characteristics of this species of lily are the relatively small blossoms and stamens, parallel rather than flared. Bitter and peppery, Tiger Lily bulbs were steamed and dried by native tribes and used as a condiment in stews. Contemporary use is restricted to the aesthetic.

The caption read:

Delphinium menzieii or Menzies Larkspur form part of the spectacular flower carpet atop Mary's Peak in the late spring and early summer. This perennial is in the buttercup family and ranges from British Columbia to Central California on the west side of the Cascade Range. The plant is named for Archibald Menzies, a naturalist and ship's surgeon serving with Captain George Vancouver as his ship survived the Pacific Northwest Coast from 1791 to 1795.

The three botanical prints hung on a brick wall just inside an alley of S. Madison Avenue in Corvallis, Oregon. Notice that this is a real alley, complete with mandatory stacked pallets, electric meters, and a woman partly hidden in a doorway smoking a cigarette.
