Smaller than the other Camassias, this little treasure is nonetheless a very desirable and attractive plant to grow in your garden. When given sufficient moisture and a suitable location, this species is able to naturalize easily.
For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.
Fall and winter sowings may be made directly into pots of sterilized potting medium, covered with a thin layer of coarse sand, and placed in a coldframe. Darkness is required to start the germination process. For mid to late spring sowings, the seed should be soaked in pure clean water then placed in pots of sterilized growing medium, covered with a thin layer of coarse sand, and refrigerated for 4-6 weeks, during which time germination will be initiated. Move pots to a cool sheltered location with bright indirect light to complete germination. Grow in moist but well-drained fertile humusy soil in sun to part shade.
