Camassia quamash is found throughout the Pacific Northwest. It prefers moist meadows, blooming profusely in April and early May. Its grass-like stalk and showy, six-petaled flowers were first documented by Lewis and Clark. Flowers vary in color from pale lilac to deep purple or blue-violet. The bulbs were a staple food of Native Americans, who harvested them in autumn. The bulbs were pit roasted or boiled, tasting similar to a sweet potato.
