Camassia in the South?
Last month's Horticulture Magazine had an article on blue spired flowers written by someone from Alabama. Camassia leichtlinii, Blue Danube were recommended, so I promptly added them to my order list for fall bulbs. Last night I was perusing Scott Ogden's Garden Bulbs for the South, and he said that camassias are always a total washout in the "deep south", which makes me wonder how deep? I live in east central Mississippi, about halfway up the state from the Gulf. Anyone grow camassias with success this far south? They are $1.75 per bulb, and I don't want to just waste money. But on the other hand, if they will do here, I truly do love blue spires! :)
