Camassia quamash is a meadow plant and the shortest form of Camassia and thus is ideally suited for naturalising in heavier soils in rough, very late mown grass or to dot in groups informally in the borders. They have naturally small bulbs (and are a much smaller plant than their Camassia cousins) which produce dramatic, rich, dark purple blue flowers with startling yellow stamens. Where they are happy they will seed about. Summer dormant. The bulbs are often marked and pitted when they are out of the ground, these marks and blemishes rarely are cause for concern.
Camassia quamash bulbs should be planted about 3" deep and 3-4" (8-10cm) apart in a humus-rich, moisture retentive soil, in sun or part shade. Prefers being moist in spring but can be dry in summer.
