Camas Flowers on Weippe Prarie
Camas Flowers

Weippe Prairie continues to be a traditional gathering place where Nez Perce families dig for camas bulbs. Camas flowers bloom here between May and June, covering the landscape in light blue. Weippe Prairie is where Lewis and Clark first had contact with the Nez Perce, upon seeing the blue flowers stretched across the prairie they mistook the fields for lakes. Please note, permission must be gained from landowners prior to harvesting camas.
