Description Fine Print
 
Camassia quamash 'Orion' is a gorgeous 1913 selection of our BC native with true blue to violet-blue, starry, lily-like flowers on slender stems in spring from a tuft of strap-like foliage. It blooms between spring bulbs and summer perennials and, unlike most bulbs, prefers moisture. This species naturalizes well, is deer and rodent resistant, and is a traditional food crop of First Nations cultures in and around the southern coastal parts of our province.
