Camassia: Cultivar Identification
Wed, 02 May 2007 21:48:14 PDT
I have a dark blue-violet camas that came to me abt. 15 years ago 
with a cultivar name that I have forgotten. It was, iirc (if I recall 
correctly), Princess this or Queen that. I don't think it was a 
Duchess or a Countess.

Does this ring a bell with anyone? I've googled and found nothing 

It is possible that the name I received it under was garbled or 
wrong. After all there is Brodiaea laxa 'Queen Fabiola' and Colchicum 
'Princess Astrid' and one of these names may have been erroneously 
transferred to the camas I have.

This dark blue-violet camas I have is shorter than the usual C 
leichtlinii native to this area. It does not set seed, unlike the 
wild camas bulbs I have brought into my garden.
