Drooping Camassia

Posted: 11/05/2013 at 11:53

Went tot Malvern Show yesterday and asked RHS person about the problem. He said it was caused by Botrytis (grey mould). Said the plant has not been in enough circulating air. As the plants have been in an open part of the garden, this does not quite hold up (bit like the flower heads!)

No likelihood of mechanical damage by humans or birds. Does not look like frost damage. The bed in the neck is well below the flower head. Today another of the flower spikes has done the same thing.

Thank you nutcutlet and Bookertoo. The offending Camassia is a blue one. It has not gone brown but the neck just below the flower head looked creased, darkened and  bent over, all within the space of a few hours. Wonder if a virus of some type is causing the problem. I have white Camassias too but they are much slower to grow so far.

Have not grown these before and suddenly the unopened flower heads have drooped and look as though they have been strangled. Anyone else had the same problem and know what caused it?
