Spikes of steely blue, star-like flowers with yellow stamens rise on tall stems above 2 ft, strappy leaf clumps. Flower spikes can include 20-80 flowers per raceme. This is a choice PNW native bulb.

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 and naturalizing.

Minimum temperature: -40° F
