Product Details

Product Details

Like festive ivory-white sparklers, the flower spikes of Camassia leichtlinii 'Alba' bring the impression of light and a dramatic silhouette to the late spring garden while bridging the gap between flowering bulbs and the blossoms of summer perennials. Each spire is packed with long-blooming, star-shaped flowers that have a hint of green at the center. Plants prefer evenly moist soil and will naturalize when happily situated. Superb for mixed borders and moon gardens.

Camassia is a small American genus of bulbous plants that produce 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 where Tulips and Lilies will not survive. Camassias flower in late spring -- a crucial time for the garden -- most Daffodils are gone, but the full glory of June perennials still lies ahead. The leaves of Camassias turn yellow and disappear in summer, making room for annuals and other plants that will gladly fill in for the rest of the season.

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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.

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.
