Also known as Camassia leichtlinii 'Alba' for its upright spikes of starry, creamy-white blooms in late spring. This elegant perennial makes a fine focal point for a damp border or meadow planting scheme where its flowers rise above the strappy, silvery-grey foliage. Camassia is a North American native, seldom seen in UK gardens, but well worth trying. Plant it among bright Alliums or against a background of dark foliage to create a dazzling contrast. Height: 130cm (51"). Spread: 10cm (4").

How to Grow
Plant Camassia bulbs at a depth of around 15cm (6in) in reliably moist, fertile soil in sun or semi shade. Avoid planting them in soil which becomes waterlogged over winter. If necessary, improve the soil prior to planting by adding plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost.
More Info
Camassia plants require little maintenance but will appreciate a dry mulch of chipped bark or leaf mould in late autumn to protect the bulbs from winter cold. When growing camassia in grassy meadows, allow the foliage to die back completely before mowing.
