Camassia cusickii commonly known as Cussick's camass orginated in North America and were originally added to horticultural journals in the late 19th century. Vivid blue starry flowers form a spike of a bloom. The flowers ripple open from the bottom up and have long bright yellow-green stamens as a contrast. The stems hold them above narrow-leaved foliage. Wild hyacinths as they are also known offer a beautiful focal point when placed front or centre of a border. They can also make a statement as a clump in a container. Plant these bulbs in September-October for a beautiful display in May-June. These perennial flowers prefer moist well-drained soils in a sunny/shady but sheltered spot in the garden. Cussick's camass is perfect for a cut flower in a vase or as part of a flower arrangement. These bulbs naturalise easily but appreciate a layer of mulch in autumn to protect from frost.
