It's time to show off your garden filled with American Meadows products!

Of course, lots of the bulbs we consider Dutch Bulbs for fall planting aren't Dutch at all. Tulips are native to the middle east, and daffodils originally came from Spain and France. (Read our History of Tulips and Daffodils.) But did you know that one of the lovliest fall bulbs you can plant is a North American native? It's a bulb many gardeners have never heard of--the magnificent Camas Lily, or simply "Camassia." It was "discovered" by Lewis and Clark on their expedition west in the early 1800's, and at that time was a major source of food and other uses by large numbers of native Americans. Lewis and Clark actually gathered camassia bulbs for a meal on the Weippe Prairie in Idaho in 1806, and described it all in their journals. As you can see by the magnificent photo above right, Camassia still blooms by the thousands in the wild today, but you'll have to travel to the upper Rocky Mountain west to see the spectacle in spring. (That photo is used with permission from the Lewis and Clark Herbarium website.) This fall, we have two camassias to add to your garden--the original which grows to almost 3 ft, and a newer dwarf that rarely tops 1 ft. called "Blue Melody." So along with your tulips and daffodils this fall, add a little American history to your garden. With the legendary western beauty, Camassia, one of the best-kept secrets in American gardening.
