Camassia Leichtlinii Sacajawea
Sacajawea is a variegated-leaf-edged form of C.leichlinii alba, the name honouring a native American Indian woman who acted as an interpreter to the explorers Lewis and Clark. Their expedition crossed America east to west (and back, for the first time) in 1805. They found "quamash " bulbs to eat once they had crossed the Rocky Mountains, but we positively DO NOT recommend doing this now. These seeds may produce variable seedlings.
Sow seeds at any time, covering them very thinly with compost or grit, 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 pot 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. Variable seedlings may be obtained.
