Description / Camassia quamash Bulbs

Pack of 20 Bulbs

Commonly called the Indian hyacinth or camas lily, the native North American Camassia quamash showcases light blue to lavender open blooms that naturalize splendidly as time passes. The late-spring bloomer grows quick and easy in light shade and full sun.

First planted by Native Americans hundreds of years ago to enjoy as a culinary delicacy, the Camassia quamash is now enjoyed for its slim lengths of cream anthers and beautiful blooms that are formed from slightly cupped wide-spaced petals. In late spring, the blooms that sit atop tall, thin dark green stems open just as peonies and roses begin to flower.

The vigorous, long-lasting C. quamash is resistant to many disease and pests. It tends to grow well in sufficient drainage and a variety of soils, even those that are acidic, heavy or wet, as long as it receives a maximum of a one-quarter day of shade. Flower growth is 12 to 24 inches high and 3 to 6 inches wide.
