There are a handful of plants that aren't commonly seen, and are surprisingly adaptable to gardens across most of the country. Camassia is one. Delivering 2-3 foot stems of starry blue-violet flowers with eye-catching gold stamen, these are excellent plants for hard to manage moist areas. Natuarlizes beautifully to form sweeps of sparking purple blue.
Camassia blooms after most spring bulbs have finished but before June perennials hit their stride: it's a great bridge plant. Also fun as an unusual cu flower.
