Electra camassia and globeflower
Camassia ‘Electra’ is blooming a week earlier than last year, despite the freeze last week. ‘Electra’ came from David Burdick
and was planted in 2005. My garden buddy Bub started the globeflowers from seed and gave me two plants, which I have since divided.
What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.
