x800 Common Camas Seeds – camassia quamash


Camas is a gorgeous native plant that bears elaborately detailed, bee-attracting purple-blue flowers in early spring and produces a wonderful wild edible root. Camas has many ancient uses and is an important native plant to keep populating! The plants may take a few years to fully establish and may take 3 years to flower for the first time. They are a hardy but slow growing plant.

To establish Camas, sew the seeds in early fall and allow them to stratify naturally over winter. They may require 2 to 3 months of stratification, so if you live in a warm climate without a prolonged freeze, artificially stratify in a fridge or freezer. Directions for doing so may be found from many sources online.

We collect, clean, sort, count, and sell seed as a chance for others to propagate healthful, medicinal, and edible plants. We factor prices based on our time and resources, nothing more. We do not try to compete with wholesalers and re-sellers.

We STRONGLY encourage everyone to save seeds of their own! It’s practical, free, and addicting 🙂
