Details30-36" tall. Late spring to early summer blooming. This native of the Pacific NW is a showy addition to your perennial beds.

In lighter loams Camassia likes wet feet over the spring months. It goes dormant later when the summer heat dries the soil.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
