The tall, regal spikes of Camassia quamash rise above handsome strap-like foliage. This low maintenance bulb is a North American native that is well suited to damp soils. The stunning bright blue camassia flowers appear in late spring to create a spectacular display. Perfect for damp borders or naturalising in informal grassy meadows; you can cut some for a vase indoors too! Height: 70cm (28"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow camassia 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 quamash 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.
