I don't know it either Sewingkilla and like you I live and hopefully learn.

Thanks for all the nice comments guys
.These Camassia.s were grown from bulbs ,planted in autumn I think you can grow them from seed Toto but not to sure I have them in a pot as this is the first time with these and I wasnt to sure of growing conditions,but they seems to be doing ok in a pot ,they are about two foot tall but thats pot as well ...if that any help ....

Lovely picture Janette, I grew some of these from seed this year, got the seeds from plantworld, easy to germinate, but are going to take long time to get to flowering size, have died back so tipped out of pot to have a look and bulblets are tiny, still one to look forward too, never seen the bulbs for sale, are they large bulbs Janette?

Hi Simbad they are about the size of a tulip bulb. I think you might be able to get them from the poundshop I am sure I read someone bought theirs from there ,worth a look in the shop to see...might give the seeds a try ,when should they be sown please....

Thanks for that Janette know what sort of size before they flower now, will have a look next time I'm near pound shop, thankyou, sowed mine around now just in unheated greenhouse, didn't germinate till following spring though.
