Camassias are stately perennial plants featuring elegant spires of starry, creamy white flowers above strap-like green leaves. They are perfect for adding floral interest to a cottage garden border before the bulk of the summer perennials take over. These bulbous herbaceous perennials are long-lived and tolerant, tending to naturalise.
C. Alba is a native of the fertile meadow lands of North America and can form large clumps. Ideal for growing in grass, where bulbs can be left undisturbed to multiply. Flowering in late spring, it is superb for picking for the house.
