From meadows and wetlands on the west side of the cascades to the coast of Northern California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, these particularly tall, blue-violet, upright terminal racemes bloom April and May.  Strappy leaves flank the naked stems. 

Camas require moisture in springtime, but drought conditions are acceptable after flowering when the bulb is going dormant. This wetland native blooms in the gap between Daffodils and Tulips and would love to live pond- or stream-side, or in a moist depression that dries as summer progresses.

Mature size: 2-3 ft T x 1-2 ft W; naturalizes in good conditions.

Minimum temperature: -20° F
