Description

Tall, showy spikes of semi-double, star-shaped white blooms create a constellation of stars on stars set atop Camassia leichtlinii 'Semiplena's grass-like foliage. It’s a veritable feast for the eye, and nobody will guess how easily you grew them. Let the stately flower spikes brighten up sunny spots or plant your Camassia leichtlinii 'Semiplena' bulbs in dappled shade beneath deciduous trees. Camassias are an excellent option for gardens with heavy soil that’s too water-retaining for most bulb varieties, and there’s no need to lift them in summer when they enter dormancy.

If this sounds like your kind of plant, don’t forget to check out our full range of camassias.
