Worth finding in the autumn, Milky - they grow from large bulbs.

As you can see, they open from the bottom, so not long enough, really, before the bottom blooms fade, even though the top ones are opening.

Wait until autumn, Sarah - much cheaper to grow them from bulbs.

I have one of these too, i put it in last autumn as a bulb, i found this one from a little flower shop in town - suprizing what i got there last year, some of though amazing tulips i have had this year anyway this is the first time i have grown Camassia and mine looks set to burst - can't wait to see it in flower. mine only has one flower spike Barb, will it have more or do i have to wait till the plant gets bigger?

Mine only had one stem the first year, then more last year and 5 stems this year! The other one is up to three stems. So - patience!!!
