Camassia quamash

One of Miz Becky's plantings of Northwest native plants, the camas or quamash is one of the most enthusiastic of the early spring bloomers, for which I love it -- unusual for me, since I don't notice most plants.

I was going to talk about the history and food uses of this important native plant, but Google provided me with this already very informative article on camassia quamash instead.

For someone who claims not to notice most plants, you sure do take a lot of pretty pictures of them! So are you going to try it?

I've been instructed by The Gardener that there are only six tubers, and I'm not allowed to touch any of them. :-)
