The strong, blue spikes of Camassia leichtlinii 'Caerulea', or Camass, attract much attention in May. Camassia leichtlinii 'Caerulea' is a very suitable bulb for flower meadows (as in the photo), or in combination with perennials and grasses in borders.

Camassia leichtlinii 'Caerulea' is native to North America. The well-known English plantsman, William Robinson (1870), noted Camassia quamash as being very suitable for naturalising in grass. Camassia leichtlinii 'Caerulea' is as suitable, and is also somewhat taller than Camassia quamash. At De Warande, in our gardens, Camassia leichtlinii 'Caerulea' grows profusely next to the main entrance, in the sunny stinzen-meadow.
