More Information

Camassia Cusickii – also known as Cussick’s Camas. The colour is wisteria blue, and has a lovely architectural shape. Camassia Cusickii is a good height and stands with elegance weaving through your border or planted in swathes in a meadow. Camassia bulbs don’t mind a damp soil.

Camassia originate from North America, often growing in damp meadows or along rivers. The bulbs were once used as a food source. Although we don’t recommend eating these cultivated bulbs.

Camassia look fantastic growing in long grass or wild flower areas, but they provide height and long lasting colour in garden beds too. Two packs of 10 will fill a square metre.

How to plant Camassia Bulbs

Plant Camassia bulbs in autumn, any time between September and December. Plant 15 cm deep, in either full sun or semi-shade. They are quite a large plant and very effective when given lots of space. Either dotted along a bed or randomly growing in a wild flower patch.

They will perform better in the sun, but in the semi-shade they will be able to flower well and reflower each year. They are a moderately hardy bulb and will tolerate cold temperatures, but you might want to cover them over with mulch to protect from the hardest of frosts. They will grow in most soil types. They would preferably like rich slightly acidic soil that holds moisture well. They won’t like drying out too quickly.
