Camassia

Starry, purplish blue flowers rise in loose spikes on tall stems. Camassia is most effective when planted in clusters in a shrub border or grassy area, where it looks perfectly natural. It needs full sun and thrives in damp, or even wet, soil.

Planting Instructions

Plant in full sun or light shade and evenly moist soil. Camassias are among the few bulbs that thrive in damp, or even wet, soil. Foliage is slow to die back in summer; do not cut before it has completely yellowed and collapsed.

when-to-plant

Spring-flowering bulbs must be planted in the fall. They need cool soil to make roots before the onset of winter. Cool fall weather arrives at different times from north to south and from high elevations to low.

Please note that the temperature of the soil lags behind the air temperature. You can generally plant later than the windows provided in this map. As long as the ground is not frozen, you can still plant.

The amaryllis are the last bulbs to arrive in the Colorblends warehouse. They are typically available for delivery toward the end of October. They can be planted upon receipt. They can also be stored in a cool, dry location for several weeks. Please note: Amaryllis bulbs may start growing before they are potted. If you decide to delay planting, open the bag(s) and set the bulbs on their roots so that the flower stems can grow straight up. And don't forget to mark your calendar or set a reminder to pot the bulbs.
Paperwhites can be potted upon receipt. They can also be stored in a cool, dry location for many weeks. Many people pot their bulbs in batches, one after the next, to keep the fragrance coming. It's not unusual for paperwhites to begin to sprout while in storage. The shoots emerge an inch or two and then stop, as though the bulbs realize they are getting ahead of themselves. The shoots often curl around the bulbs, pointing opposite gravity. After the bulbs are potted, the shoots straighten up.
