Camassia quamash (Camas)

Camassia quamash (Camas)

With the enchanting look of a meadow wildflower, this unique upright bulb plant is sure to win a place in the hearts of gardeners everywhere. Camassia quamash is a real charmer with erect racemes of blooms in the most beautiful shade of lavender-blue we've seen in a long time. The carefree plant emerges in late spring to early summer, quickly and efficiently filling in the bare spaces left behind by the spring blooms that have already faded for the season. A favorite of butterflies and other beneficial pollinators, this camas is an excellent choice for any landscape. It is also a fantastic naturalizer that returns yearly with increased blooms and vigor.
