Camassia are hardy family of perennial bulbs that thrive in a full sun, to partly shaded position. Prepare your beds to a depth of 20cm, making sure the soil is light and fluffy. Plant the root laying horizontal at a depth of 5cm. Allow 5-10cm between each root, however a less full result can be achieved if you choose to plant further apart.
If growing your Camassia in a pot, select a high quality potting mix that is free draining. Some gravel in the base of the pot will assist with any drainage issues. Ensure the plant is well fed and watered right up until dormancy.
Camassia DO NOT require refrigeration. Feed your plants as they come into bloom, and make sure you leave the foliage to fully die down - this feeds and grows NEXT year's flower.
