  • In slightly dried soils, Camassia can be grown in areas that receive 4-5 hours of direct sunlight.
  • Plant the Camassia bulbs 8-10cm (3-4") deep and 8-10cm (3-4") apart.

Care Instructions

  • For best naturalising results, leave the plants undisturbed; they'll be fine for years in the same spot.
  • After blooming has finished for the season leave the foliage in place; don't cut it off. The leaves will gather sunlight, create food through photosynthesis and strengthen the bulbs for the future.
  • Water as needed during active growth periods.
  • By mid summer the leaves may yellow and die back. Foliage may be removed at this point.
  • Camassia prefer to be undisturbed. These are not the best plants to use for containers.
