Camassia quamash

The first flower on a camas plant in the Selkirk College propagation beds. It has been a wet cool spring, and camas are just beginning to flower, two weeks later than usual. The plants have been loving the weather, and growing larger leaves and setting many buds. They should be in full flower for the fifth annual Camas Discovery Day in Millennium Park, Castlegar on May 14, 2017. Read about it here: Camas Discovery Day
