Plant details

Sometimes known as wild hyacinths, camassias come from North America, where the huge bulbs were a traditional wild food crop. They look striking when in flower, are very long-lived and are perfect for naturalising in long grass and wildflower gardens. 

Camassia leichtlinii subp. leichtlinii bears spikes of star-shaped flowers through grassy leaves. It's perfect for growing in large drifts for dramatic effect. For best results grow in moist soil in full sun.
