“Camassia Leichtlinii” Is A Hardy Perennial From The North Western United States And Southern British Columbia. “Camassia Leichtlinii Alba” Bears Steepled Clusters Of Starry Creamy White Flowers Atop Tall Leafless Stems In Early Summer. Its Cultivar “Blue Diamond” Has Deep Blue Flowers. The Clumps Of Strap-Shaped, Keeled, Green To Gray-Green Leaves Go Dormant In Summer. The Leaves And Stalks Grow From Large Bulbs With Dark Tunics.

“CAMASSIA LEICHTLINII ALBA” HAS RECEIVED THE ROYAL HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY’S AWARD OF GARDEN MERIT (AGM) WHICH IS FOR PLANTS OF OUTSTANDING EXCELLENCE.

The Flowers From This Camassia Drop From The Lower Part Of The Flowering Spike First, But Their Stalks Remain To Create A Spidery Ladder Beneath The Last Of The Starry Blooms. They Are Striking Plants When In Flower, Very Long-Lived And A Perfect Choice For Naturalizing In Long Grass And Wild Flower Gardens. Plant In Large Drifts So Their Tall Slender Stems Of Star-Like Creamy White Flowers Can Make A Strong Impact. The Flowers Are Good For Cutting.

They Grow And Flower Best In Full To Partial Sun In Well-Drained Soil. Though This Plant Prefers Steady Moisture In Late Winter And Spring. Narrow In Stature, It Looks Better Planted In Groups. Given Favourable Conditions And Left Undisturbed, Large Camassia Persists And Increases For Years. Pair It With Plants Such As Hardy Geranium That Will Cover The Withering Leaves. Let The Leaves Start To Lose Colour Before Cutting Them Back... Blue Flowers In May On A 90 CM Tall Stem.
