Camas (Camassia quamash)
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Camas is often abundant in wet meadows from B.C. south to California and east through the northern Rocky Mountains. Blooms can be spectacular, making meadows solid blue, appearing from a distance to be a lake. Cama was an important staple that sustained native Americans and still has cultural use for them.
