Camassia leichtlinii ssp. suksdorfii
(Suksdorf's Large Camas, Leichtlin's Camas, Great Camas)
A beautiful perennial with star-like, slender petaled blossoms of creamy blue or white.
The handsome clusters of flowers form on tall, 2-4' spikes in late spring, about three weeks after Common Camas.
Greater Camas is found only on the west side of the Cascades and is hardy from USDA zones 6-10.
Camas will do well in sun or filtered shade and succeeds in heavy soils.
A true meadow plant, this Camas likes moisture in the winter and spring followed by a dry period in the summer.
