Product Details

Product Details

A bluish purple Camassia whose name fittingly translates to Blue Danube. Nicely formed florets with yellow stamens fill its large racemes.

This small American genus of bulbous plants produces long, straight stems bearing dozens of small, star-shaped flowers in varying shades of blue, cream, and white. Unlike most bulbs, Camassias are quite tolerant of winter wet and will prosper in damp sites. Camassias flower in late spring, a time when most Daffodils and Tulips are gone, but the full glory of June perennials still lies ahead.

For more information on the care of Camassia, click Growing Guide.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Beautiful Deer Resistant Color

Carolina King from Chapel Hill, NC

I put about a dozen of these behind a maple tree where they still receive afternoon southern sun. They were so pretty the first year, can't wait for subsequent years. I need to add a ground cover or something that hides the leaves a bit while they collect energy after the bloom. Then it will be perfect. Deer didn't bother them.

Latin Name Pronunciation: kah-mass'-ee-ah

Bulb size: 7-8 cm 

Camassia is one of very few bulbs that tolerate moist soil, so it's a good candidate to plant near a pond or stream, as long as the bulb is above the water table. Plant 5-6 in. deep, 5-6 in. apart (4-5 per sq. ft.) in average to moist soil. Full sun to part shade.
