Camassia leichtlinii Pink Stars

New! We are thrilled to introduce this spectacular color breakthrough: the first pink Camassia! Pink Stars has star-shaped, pale pink florets studding strong upright spires. The flowers open sequentially from the bottom to the top. Best grown in moist, fertile soil in full sun to partial sunlight. Commonly known as the The Wild Hyacinth, Camass, Quamash or Leichtlin’s Camass, C. leichtlinii Pink Stars is incredibly valuable since it naturalizes well when left undisturbed in a good spot, and since it blooms in the blank period between the big Narcissus and Tulip spring show and the big summer show when perennials and annuals hit their colorful strides. As it matures over time, when it’s happy where it’s planted, it naturalizes by bulb offsets (called bulbils: baby bulbs on the sides of the mother bulb you’ve planted). Very limited supply.

You’ll need four bulbs per square foot. (Square footage is determined multiplying the planting site’s length times its width.) Bulb size: 14 cm/up. Full to partial sunlight. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: May/June. Plant 5" deep and 5" apart. If it’s planted near a stream or pond, make sure to plant it above the high water mark. Even though Camassia likes soil with a bit of moisture, it can not be submerged in water. HZ: 4-8. Height: 24" to 30".

Camassias are The Art & Soul of Spring.
