Camassias really are under stated and deserve a place in any managed wild flower meadow, following on nicely from the bluebells. Camassias begin to follow just as other wild flowers emerge complimenting the likes of the wild hawkweed and yellow rattle in shades of yellow and blues, buttercups quickly follow suit with daisies at the foot and cow parsley wavering over head. Setting aside an area for wild flowers is much more than just letting the weeds grow, it is is fact an intensely managed area of any garden that requires fore thought and careful planning. Let the grass grow to long and the effect is lost, allow invasive species to overtake and you loose the precious wild flowers.
Planting a succession of Spring flowering bulbs and corms will help keep your wild flower meadow interesting and under control. Enjoy (winter aconites) Eranthis that emerge in late winter through to the swaying starry blue, Camassia in mid May and all those that flower in between.
