Camassia Leichtlinii Caerulea

I have bought weeks ago a pack of 50 seeds from this beautiful Native American Flowers. They are very beautiful, according to the images I have seen online:

I am planning on planting them during the fall.
These are very interesting facts and tips from johnscheepers.com :

  • It is stunning as a cohesive backdrop for a lengthy perennial bed, in substantive clusters among yet-to-flower summer perennials or in seemingly uncultivated woodland drifts in full to filtered sunlight.

  • Growing from 24″ to 30″ tall, Camassia leichtlinii caerulea grows into increasingly more substantive plants as it matures over the years. Encountering a thick, mature stand of Camassia leichtlinii caerulea gives one a refreshing feeling as if brushed by ion-drenched breezes in a late spring electrical storm when the world is brilliant neon-green under a blue-gray sky.
  • Generally, it has been referred to as the wild hyacinth although it bears no fragrance. Happily, deer do not usually eat them, nor do underground rodents munch on them.
  • Plant Camassia leichtlinii caerulea bulbs in the fall after the soil has cooled down to around 55 degrees F (after two weeks of sweater weather when night time temps hover in the 40s), in somewhat moist, neutral pH soil in moderate to full sunlight: 5″ deep and 5″ apart.
  • Top dress the garden three times a year with a 4-10-6 granular organic flower bulb fertilizer: at fall planting time, spring sprouting time and when the flower starts to die back.
