Plant of the Day – Camassia

Oh camassia..how do I love thee, let me count the ways!

Not being an Oregon native, camassia were unfamiliar to me so I gasped when I first saw them en masse in a fellow blogger’s garden. Several years later, camassia provide a sweep of deep lavender-blue flowers across my hellstrip in April.

These camassia are a combination of Camassia squamash ‘Blue Melody’, Camassia leichtlinii ‘Blue Danube’ and Camassia leichtlinii caerulea.

Our wet winters allow for the camassia to thrive even in my dry garden and I love the contrast to their pointy companions!

The camassia look particularly stunning adjacent to Grevillea miqueliana and Grevillea ‘Neil Bell’!!!!

See you tomorrow!
