Camassia Collection - Camassia bulbs
Camassias are among the showiest of spring bulbs. Emerging in spring-to-early summer, the Camassia bulbs sprout tall spires of starry flowers, adding height and colour to the garden.
Our Camassia Collection includes one each of:
Camassia leichtlinii caerulea
Tall stems of blue starry flowers
Camassia leichtlinii ‘Alba’
Pristine white flower spikes
Camassias will tolerate some shade and the pale flowers look superb against a dark background, lighting up semi-shaded areas. Use them as excellent border plants or as part of a meadow planting scheme with other moisture loving bulbs such as fritillaria.
Camassias bulbs are just as much at home in natural planting schemes and they thrive in damp conditions where many bulbs would struggle.
Camassias originate from moist coastal and mountainous regions of North and Western America, where they grow in damp meadows and the bulbs can naturalise to form large clumps.
Plant camassia bulbs in autumn. The small, irregularly-shaped bulbs should be planted around 10cm/4in deep into rich, moist soil. Unlike many bulbs they thrive on heavy soils.
Choose a sunny site that gets adequate moisture in spring and early summer.
How you receive your bulbs
You receive our spring-flowering bulbs in autumn in a plastic mesh. This is to keep the bulbs together in a pack which is nice and airy – perfect to keep the bulbs healthy while in transit.
Can’t plant straight away?
Keep your bulbs in a cool, light and dry place and preferably hanging on a hook so that air can get to the bulbs at all angles. Look to planting your bulbs within a week of receiving them.See Full Description +
