Wild Hyacinth is a native bulb with blue, purple, white or cream flowers in late spring.

It likes moist, acidic soil and can survive in wet soil better than most bulbs.

Camassia is deer-resistant, squirrel-resistant and will naturalize to form a large clump.

It also grows quite well in containers.

Plant them 5″ deep and 4″ to 6″ apart.

Note that these plants are poisonous.
