The laden flower stems stretch up to 90cm. The blooms cover an impressive 20-50cm of the stem with semi double, cream flowers that open from the bottom to the top. The flowers are one of the last Cammasia to bloom and are sterile so last longer for many weeks, extending the bulb season into summer.

Plant Camassia leichtlinii ‘Semiplena’ in humus rich, moist, well drained soil. They thrive in a full sun to semi shade location. Water in well and keep moist in active growth. This plant is native to damp meadow areas of North America, so boggy soils in spring and summer are not a problem. The bulbs are long lived and come back reliably year after year.

Camassia are suitable for borders, rockeries, by streams or ponds and grass or meadow planting. The bulbs are long lasting and will gradually multiply. The bulbs are best left to naturalise and should only be lifted as they become overcrowded.

Common names for Camassia include Wild Hyacinths, Qumash, Leithtlin’s Lilies and Camass Lilies.
