Planting

Plant your Camassia (wild hyacinth) bulbs as soon as possible upon receipt, in the garden, or into pots and planters. Do store your wild hyacinth bulbs frost-free until planted. They are not hardy until planted and even when potted up will still need protection. Plant these bulbs in a hole 3x as deep as the height of the bulb - so, a 5 cm bulb goes in a 15 cm hole. Camassia/wild hyacinth bulbs need to be planted 10 cm apart. Loosen the soil with a fork and plant each bulb point upwards. Fill the hole and try not to walk over the planting area. Camassia will thrive in loose and good draining soil in full sun.

The Camassia (Wild Hyacinth) in a pretty planter on your patio/decking

Wild hyacinth (Camassia) looks lovely in amongst low growing plants in the border.  Also a delightful flower to combine with late flowering tulips, grape hyacinths and forget-me-nots. Camassia is also sure to thrive in a pot or window box. Do ensure fresh potting compost and give good drainage with a layer of potsherds or hydro-granules in the base. Store frost-free or pack well in with bubble wrap. Water extra in periods of drought.

Care

Wild hyacinth (Camassia) bulbs, can remain planted in the same spot for years on end. Remove overblown flower stems but leave the foliage. All the energy from the sun will then go back into the bulb. Bakker recommends feeding with Bakker's bulb fertiliser immediately after flowering to ensure good growth and profuse flowering next year. Only cut back Camassia (wild hyacinth) foliage once it has turned yellow. Your wild hyacinths will come up again next year with lots of new flowers if you care for them as we advise.

Extra

Camassia makes a very striking show in the spring. The star-shaped flowers that appear are in beautiful shades. There are various varieties in white, through blue to violet. There are even yellow Camassia (wild hyacinth) to be had and some varieties have variegated foliage. Camassia (wild hyacinth) will naturalise easily in the shade of trees and shrubs.
Camassia is classified as a member of the asparagus family (Asparagaceae).
