WOW I love the blue in the first pic. The name looks french to me. Is there an "English" name for that plant, Puff ?

Hi big smile,
As far as I know, "Camassia" could be the latin name. It is a bulb which you may get at a good bulb supplier.If I remember correctly, that specific colour was "metallic blue". That bulb does come in white also. They (bulb) are poisonous to deer. In England, they have whole fields of them

Glad you enjoyed

There is a species of wild camas called Death Camas. It has a white flower so be very careful when obtaining a white one not to plant it near pets or children.

I have "Camassia" in my garden but its not as big as yours. Mine has varigated foliage with a blue flower. i moved it last spring, it may take a couple yrs to get mature.
Thanks for your info.

I really don't know the whole story Remi. I know that this particular camas grows wild in the foothills here and that one must be careful. In it's early stages it looks a lot like wild onion. I'm sure no reputable nursery would ever sell it without an explicit warning. I'm not sure if the bulbs of all camas are poisonous but it's something to consider when small pets and children are around.
Here is a link to the Death Camas.
