Camassia

Camassia leichtlinii ‘Blue Danube’ full sun  partial shade

A native of the American West, Wild Hyacinth's slender spikes of dark blue flowers are brightened by a clutch of yellow stamens as they rise from straplike basal foliage. Unlike most bulbs, ‘Blue Danube’ relishes moisture and will even tolerate clay, providing it gets plenty of sun. Its ethereal starriness naturalizes superbly in the wild garden with Geranium ‘Katherine Adele’.

Blooms May-June.

Size: 18" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Camassia leichtlinii ‘Blue Danube’ (P-0831)

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Geranium 'Bevan's Variety' for it's deer tolerant and stalwart habit, which sports richly colored, long blooming summer flowers. Named for the thick fleshy rhizomes by which it spreads, ‘Bevan’s Variety’ is one of the best ground cover plants for shady areas. Flourishing year after year in our older border with early flowering Brunnera and Euphorbia ‘Great Dixter’. Bearing clusters of intensely colored dark magenta flowers and decorative deep red sepals above soft green aromatic foliage.

Customer Comment:

“We ordered a half-dozen Bergenia 'Bressingham White'.... Not only did they arrive in tip-top shape, but they also are thriving this spring.”
