Camassia leichtlinii  Avons Stellar Hybrids

Plant details

Sometimes known as wild hyacinths, camassias come from North America where the huge bulbs were a traditional wild food crop. They are striking plants when in flower, very long-lived and a perfect choice for naturalising in long grass and wildflower gardens, or in a bog garden which will satisfy their love of moist conditions - unusually for bulbs, they will even tolerate wet soil in winter. For best effect, plant in large drifts so that their tall slender stems of star-like white, blue or mauve flowers can make a strong impact. Camassia leichtlinii Avon Stella Hybrids produce stems up to a meter tall and come in a variety of creamy whites to deep and rich blues.
