The vast majority of bulbous plant dislike a heavy, wet, claggy soilthey often languish and rot! However, if this is the kind of soil you have in your garden, do try growing camassiasthey like these conditions. And one of the best is Camassia leichtlinii 'Silk River'. In mid-spring, lime green buds develop on tall, branched flower spikes, along with fresh green foliage. In late spring, the buds open to form a mass of creamy white, star-shaped flowers. Most camassias have flowers in shades of blue, so it is pleasing to grow a white version. And, as with all camassias, the blooms open from the bottom upwards. 

Camassias generally are good plants for container-growing, so if you just have a patio garden, terrace or balcony, these plants will be fine for you. Camassia leichtlinii 'Silk River' will also grow well in grass or in borders, in full sun or part shade. Bees and butterflies will adore the flowers as much as you do. Oh, and by they way, this camassia will make a good cut flower, too!
