Camassia quamash

camassia bulbs

20 bulbs £4.49
  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist but well-drained, fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)
  • Bulb size: 6cm

    Ideally suited to naturalised planting schemes including wildflower meadows or grassland where the soils are reliably moist (but not waterlogged), this quamash will also make a handsome addition to the herbaceous border, where its bright blue flowers and greyish green leaves will add colour and structure in late spring and early summer.

  • Garden care: Plant the bulbs 8cm deep and 20cm apart in big groups in the autumn. Try to plant them where they will remain for several years as they resent being moved. In cold areas, apply a generous layer of mulch in autumn.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
