If you are interested in visiting Camassia, now is the time. The meadows are awash with blue, pink, and white, dominated by: Common Camas <I>(Camassia quamash)</I>, Rosy Plectritis <I>(Plectritis congesta)</I>, Large-flowered Blue-eyed Mary <I>(Collinsia grandiflora)</I>, and Western Saxifrage <I>(Saxifraga occidentalis)</I>. Also in bloom are Wood Violets <I>(Viola glabella)</I>, Western Buttercup <I>(Ranunculus occidentalis </I>var.<I> occidentalis)</I>, Candy Flower <I>Claytonia sibirica)</I>, False Solomon's-Seal <I>(Maianthemum racemosum)</I>, Star-Flowered Solomon's-Seal <I>(Maianthemum stellatum)</I>, Slender Toothwort <I>(Cardamine pulcherrima)</I>, Wild Strawberry <I>(Fragaria virginiana)</I>, Bigroot <I>(Marah oreganus)</I>, and Disappointing Buttercup <I>(Ranunculus uncinatus)</I>. There are a few remaining Western Trillium <I>(Trillium ovatum)</I> and Oregon Fawn Lily <I>(Erythronium oregonum)</I>, but those are well past peak. It is still much too early for the White Rock Larkspur <I>(Delphinium leucophaeum)</I>.
