Camassias are an early summer flowering bulb which are suitable for the border as long as the soil does not dry out too much. The bulbs are reasonably hardy if planted in the garden, I have had no problems with them coming up each year but in a pot they would need some protection. They require sun or part shade with deep moist soil, plant bulbs in the autumn to 4in deep. The strap like leave come up late winter and the leafless stems start to appear between the leaves in April for flowering in May. Height is about 32/36in (80/100cm) and they produce a dense spike of star shaped white, blue or light blue flowers. They can be propagated by seed if this is not wanted cut off the flower spike after flowering.
