Candice G. sends this post about the beautiful wild Camus plant:
“The wild Camus is blooming at the Port Townsend Golf Course. There is a smallish plot there, preserved by the native plant society, that husbands our historic Camus. This is one of the only remaining natural areas in these parts that reminds us of the vast wild prairie species that carpeted our area long ago. The Camus root was an essential part of the native people’s diet, being I think, sort of a like a tiny potato. The blossoms don’t last long, so go see them now.”
Below are a few resources on native plants, including a list of places where you can view native plants in the Port Townsend region (prepared by the Washington Native Plant Society). If you are interested in environmental stewardship, there is also a link to a native plant landscaping plan.
