Camassia leichtlinii 'Alba' - DRY BULBS - Large Bag (6 bulbs)

Plant type: Bulb

RHS Award of Garden Merit
Availability : Order now for Sept/Oct delivery
An elegant form of Camassia with spires of pure-white flowers in late spring. A stunning bulb for the border, especially with a dark background. Also good for mixing with the other blue camassias where it will flower around 2 weeks after they finish. Excellent in soil that does not fully dry out.

As a rule of thumb, bulbs should be planted in a hole, the depth of which is around 3 times the height of the bulb. We usually dig our planting holes a little deeper than this and then fill the base with some fine grit which helps with drainage directly under the bulb. Never plant at perfectly measured distances apart as this can look artificial – for smaller bulbs we plant in clumps of five to nine in a staggered group so that they look more natural when they flower. For full tips on planting bulbs please click on the ‘cultivation guides’ tab on our home page.
