Description

Camassia scilloides is a perennial herb known commonly as Atlantic camas, wild hyacinth, and eastern camas. It is native to the eastern half of North America, including Ontario and the eastern United States.

The species produces inflorescences up to half a meter tall from a bulb 1–3 centimetres (0.39–1.18 in) wide. It has a few leaves each up some 20–60 cm (7.9–23.6 in) long. The flowers have light blue or whitish tepals and yellow anthers.

Type: Hardy perennial

Height: 1-3 feet tall, 12-36"

Location: Sun or part sun

Hardiness zones: 4-8

Note: Poisonous plants and seeds

Seeds per pack: 10

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. Germination is in 14-60 days after the warming period. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
