Artist's Description

Taken in a field in National Provincal Park, Vancouver Island BC Canada

The Indian Camas (or Indian hyacinth or Wild hyacinth, Camassia quamash) is native to western North America. Its flowers bloom in various shades of blue. DNA and biochemical studies by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group have reassigned Camassia from the Lily family to the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Agavoideae. The scientific species name “quamash” is from a Nez Perce term for the plant’s bulb, which was gathered and used as a food source by tribes in the Pacific Northwest. Photographed on Lighthouse Point, Deception Pass State Park, Fidalgo Island, USA.
