      Mia – This is also found in Utah. I had an incorrect link / scientific name in the post originally, but it has now been corrected; that page includes a distribution map. I’ve seen it in Idaho in large areas in wet fields that looked blue like a pond. These were at relatively high elevations – near Stanley, and also between Cascade and McCall.

    Camassia Quamash – I live in New York State and have a large area of these plants in full bloom.
    And now I have a name for them.
