Recreate this meadowland where the picturei was taken at RHS Wisley using camassia to produce a blanket of purple-blue in the late spring.
Camassia are very tough bulbs and are happy to be planted in soils that are less than perfect. They will endure soils that are heavy and poorly drained. Can be grown in grassland/meadow land areas or borders of the garden. Prefer to be in full sun but are also ok in semi shaded areas that has soil that is humus rich. Leave undisturbed from year to year for the best performance and they will self seed once established. Do not allow to dry out during the growing season.
