Product Information

Camassias (Wild hyacinths) are one of the easiest, simple to look after bulbs you can grow, thriving in poor soils that other bulbs tend to struggle in.

Extremely hardy, this perennial bulb returns year after year, with bigger and better displays and can be successfully naturalised in grass.

In late spring, loose spikes of violet-blue, star-shaped flowers appear on top of tall stems and are the perfect to compliment tulips. As they flower before many perennials are in bloom, Camassias will add an invaluable splash of colour to your garden.

Perfect for sun or light shade, they're also good in containers and as cut flowers, so you can grow and enjoy them even without a garden.

Supplied as a pack of 7 bulbs, ready for planting out.

Top Tips

Camassia bulbs will spread and form good sized clumps, so plant somewhere they can naturalise. Mulch well in autumn as a precaution against possible freezing.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Camassia Leichtlinii Blue:

  • Plant in moist, well-draining soil, in sun or part shade, spacing bulbs 8-10cm (3-4in) deep and 8-10cm (3-4in) apart.
  • After planting, water the Camassia well to settle the soil around the bulbs.
  • Although best in the garden, bulbs can also be grown in containers. Incorporate horticultural grit into the compost to improve drainage.
  • To protect the bulbs grown in a pot against frost, place the pot in a frost-free area or cover it with bubble wrap. Water well during dry periods.

 

Aftercare advice for Camassia:

  • Allow the bulb leaves to die down naturally they can give you a long and lovely spring display.
  • In very cold areas, the soil should be mulched to protect the bulbs in late autumn.
  • Water freely through the summer .
