Suksdorf's large camas
Similar to the common camas, but with larger, star-shaped flowers ranging in color from soft to dark violet-blue on 2 ft. tall stems. Native to grasslands and moist meadows that dry out in the summer. Also found in open, well lit woodlands. Easy to grow in full sun to light shade in a variety of soil types, including heavy clay. Allow to go dry after seed is set, where it will go completely dormant. This eye catching beauty is appealing to bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. An excellent container plant and cut flower. Deer resistant.
