CAMASSIA LEICHTLINII SSP LEICHTLINII WHITE
In early spring this bulbous perennial pushes up narrow leaves, glaucous above, and tall, strong, bare stems carrying spires of creamy starry flowers which take up little space among other rounded plants or shrubs. It seeds freely making glorious swathes in time.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
