Like festive ivory-white sparklers, the flower spikes of Camassia leichtlinii 'Alba' bring the impression of light and a dramatic silhouette to the late spring garden while bridging the gap between flowering bulbs and the blossoms of summer perennials. Each spire is packed with long-blooming, star-shaped flowers that have a hint of green at the center. Plants prefer evenly moist soil and will naturalize when happily situated. Superb for mixed borders and moon gardens.

Camassia is a small American genus of bulbous plants that produce long, straight stems bearing dozens of small, star-shaped flowers in varying shades of blue, cream, and white. Unlike most bulbs, Camassias are quite tolerant of winter wet and will prosper in damp sites where Tulips and Lilies will not survive. Camassias flower in late spring -- a crucial time for the garden -- most Daffodils are gone, but the full glory of June perennials still lies ahead. The leaves of Camassias turn yellow and disappear in summer, making room for annuals and other plants that will gladly fill in for the rest of the season.
