Camas Camassia quamash

Even though camas has moved from the Lily family to the Agave family, it's a great example of the Lily family's "three numerous" structure, which means that its parts occur in threes. It's also a good flower for observing and becoming familiar with reproductive parts. Notice the six petals (or tepals), six stamens--each with a yellow, pollen-producing anther, and the superior ovary, which is green, and sports a style with a subtly three-pronged stigma.
