A final touch.
Zigadenus elegans belongs to the Melanthiaceae family and is native to the woodland clearings and wet meadows of North America. It has an elegant, semi-bulbous rootstock and produces a clump of grey-green leaves that look like grass.
The flowers are very refined delicate cream stars with green centres.
In the garden we like to plant Mountain Deathcamas or Elegant Camas together with other partial shade beauties, such as heuchera, Epimedium, Tiarella, Athyrium niponicum var. pictum.
Over the years Zigadenus elegans can form beautiful clumps which can reach 90 cm in height.
Grow in partial shade in the sun (not scorching) and in humus-rich, light, moist and well-drained soil. Heavy soils should be avoided.
