|Clare Bulb Co comment:
Camassias are becoming more popular by the year,
with good reason. At first glance they look much like delphiniums, (but
two months early!)
Keep moist in the summer, (i.e. avoid planting in a bed that bakes dry). Plant at least 3 to a clump. Camassias need thinning out after a few years, so new clumps may be formed. The clumps become quite large after a while. In the lower picture these have been in situ in our garden for about eight years.
In the bottom picture Camassias are growing on one of our customer's estate in Scotland, in a woodland situation, with Rheum Palmate var. Tanguticum and Matteuccia Struthiopteris .
