Giant Camas/Camassia quamash

Giant Camas


Common names are Camas, Quamash, Indian Hyacinth, and wild Hyacinth

Large Camas is native to meadows from central and northern California to British Columbia, Canada. 
It belongs to the genus Camassia (the Camas Lillies) and the family Lilliaceae (the Lily family).  
Like all lilies, Large Camas is a true bulb.  It grows new leaves in late winter/early spring, flowers and then
dies back to the bulb. 

The six-petaled flowers vary in color from pale lilac or white to deep purple or blue-violet
