Dichelostemma congestum is a species of flowering plant known by the common names roundtooth snakelily, manyflower brodiaea and wild hyacinth. It is native to California and Oregon, where it grows in hills, mountains, and inland grasslands. It is a perennial wildflower erecting a tall, naked stem topped with a spherical inflorescence of up to 35 densely-packed purple or pink-purple flowers. Each flower is a tube about a centimeter long with six petal-like lobes arranged in a starlike corolla. The lobes may curl back slightly.
