Camassia leichtlinii ‘Alba’ (White Leichtlin’s Camas) [20 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-sowers only, because they require patience while waiting for germination and then while waiting for them to reach flowering size. Sow 1/4 inch deep in fall to early winter and set the pot outside, in a spot protected from mice, to germinate when conditions are right in spring.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Growing bulbs from seed takes a bit of patience, but it’s an interesting project and a way to potentially have a good number of bulbs for the price of one seed packet. White Leichtlin’s camas (Camassia leichtlinii ‘Alba’) is worth the wait, with racemes (spike-like clusters) of starry white flowers in late spring, on 2- to 3-foot-tall stems over slender, green, basal leaves. It goes dormant by midsummer. If you allow seeds to mature on the plants, they may self-sow and create a nice patch. The species is native to western North America and thrives in moist-soil sites, where bulbs like alliums and tulips may be prone to rot. Full sun to light shade. Zones 3 to 8.

Collected in late June 2023. At least 20 seeds. Unknown ecotype. Shipping to US addresses only.
