an anyone tell me if there is a difference in the shape of =
Camassia quamash bulbs as compared to C. leichtlinii?  I have searched =
all my keys and other reference books and can find no description of the =
bulbs.  Martyn & Rix have many photos of plants showing the underground =
parts but not of Camassia.  I've keyed out some as leichtlinii, then =
noticed two distinct bulb shapes when I was transplanting younger stock =
that hasn't bloomed yet, and know I may have mixed tags.  If this sounds =
confused, I am.  Please save me from a terminal state of confusion!
