    What people will do to remove weeds !!! Only a surface treatment though. The deep roots of other native plants remain unaffected. I believe that's the answer to your question Georgia.

    Yes, camas bulbs are deep. Something like the meadowfoam, though, I can't imagine being too deep-rooted (perhaps I'm wrong). But it looks like the fire treatment occurs during the offseason so as not to interfere.
