Description

Blue and gold make a wonderful colour contrast in your garden. Now, you can get both at once with Camassia 'Blue Melody'. The intensely blue flowers are adorned with golden anthers, but that’s not where the contrast ends. Camassia 'Blue Melody' adds extra visual impact thanks to its variegated foliage which forms a neat clump of grass-like leaves from which the flower spikes rise. This camassia isn’t just in harmony with what pleases the eye—it’ll also suit your busy lifestyle. All it needs is moist soil in full sun or light shade. Once Camassia quamash 'Blue Melody' is planted, it’s quite happy to settle down and give you blooms for many successive years. The clump of foliage thickens over time, getting even more stunning as time goes by.

Camassias are a low-maintenance gardening gem, so consider adding a few more camassia varieties to your garden palette.
