This listing is for one packet of Wild Hyacinth (Camassia scilloides) seeds. Each packet contains roughly 40 seeds. For best germination of native species, remember to scatter seeds November-January! 

A.k.a. Atlantic Camas. This showy late spring bloomer is in the Lily family, and shows it! Tolerates full sun through bright shade, and is at home on woods edges and in bright shade gardens. Leaves die back after seeds mature in the summer. Slow to establish from seed, but mature plants send off shoots from their bulbs to form colonies. And old colony of hyacinth in bloom is a sight to behold!
