Camassia quamash (Wild Hyacinth)
Lovely Lavender Spires
Commonly known as the Wild Hyacinth, Camassia is a sought after genus since it naturalizes well in a good spot, and blooms mid season, when many other bulbs are spent or have not yet begun. Large racemes, made up of dozens of lovely 2", lavender-blue, star shaped flowers, that open from bottom to top.
Camassia is native to the U.S. Pacific Northwest, and thus is best grown in moist, fertile soil. Deer- and rodent-resistant.
Does not ship internationally.

Camassia is best grown in full sun to partial sunlight. Unlike most bulbs, it prefers soil that has a bit more moisture. Choose a spot that's either sunny and moist (but not underwater!), or partially shady. Tolerates neglect well. After planting, water in well; beyond that average rainfall should suffice for water.
Follow variety instructions on planting depth.
