Common Camas (Camassia quamash)


Common Camas (Camassia quamash)

from 3.50

A stunning perennial with a spire of gorgeous star shaped blue (and occasionally white) flowers that vary over the species’ range from a pale periwinkle to a vivid blue. Meriwether Lewis is said to have thought, seeing fields of Camas from afar, that they were lakes. These are found in moist meadows that dry in summer. Plant in fall for good cold stratification. They will take a few years to form a bulb big enough to bloom, and eventually will seed around.
