Rare Camas Lilies Available Now Via Pre-Order
August 25th, 2016
Celebrating our 11th Anniversary Season!
Hello Native Plant Lovers
We hope your summer is going well. We have two important things to tell you relating to natives.
First of all, native plants are part of our 2 for 1 Mix and Match sale. We have lots of good ones still in stock. Some of them are dormant now it being summer but they have great bulbs/roots that will emerge in the spring to put on great displays.
Secondly, we are excited to have as part of our Rare Bulb Pre-Order six rare forms of native camas lilies. These are rarely, if ever, offered in Canada and were quite popular last year so please order early. They are so beautiful and so easy to grow.
Have a look at them below!

Mix & Match
Gorgeous West Coast Natives from our Rare Bulb Pre-Order
The genus Camassia offers some of the most beautiful species of flowering plants on the West Coast. These amazing spires of blue or white rise up in the spring garden on vertical spikes with their star-like flowers shimmering in the sunlight. They are easy to grow in full to part sun, come back year after year, and bulk up into nice clumps given time. No native plant enthusiast should be without camas lilies.
Rare Spring Bulbs
Choose from 135 Different Rare Bulbs to Make Your Garden Extraordinary
Visit the Rare Bulb Pre-Order on our Phoenix Perennials Mail Order Site to see our full selection of 135 rare bulbs. Both mail order and local customers should place their orders through our mail order system. Local customers should select the pick up option when checking out. Quantities are limited. Please order early to secure your favourites.
Our selection of rare bulbs will ship or be ready for pick-up in September. For mail order customers: if you combine bulbs and Cypripedium in the same order (which are not available until mid October) we will ship your bulbs and Cyps together in October. Please place separate orders if you want your bulbs to arrive as early as possible in the fall (Sept) and to have your Cypripedium ship later in October.
Please Note: Because we must pay our suppliers in advance, we will process payment of Rare Bulb orders at the time of ordering.
Also note that we do not expect to receive about 10-15% of the bulbs we are hoping to get. These bulbs are rare for many reasons but mostly because they are slower to bulk up than bulbs that are more commonly available. For this reason, supplies at harvest time can be less than expected and we are usually shorted on some varieties. Please be understanding if we contact you in the fall that some of the bulbs you ordered are not available.
Should a cultivar not be available at the time of shipping/pick-up, we will give you the choice of substituting a different cultivar, receiving a refund, or having a credit applied to your account for a future order.
Ordering: Visit Rare Bulb Pre-Order on our Phoenix Perennials Mail Order Site for full details. Mail order and local customers should both place your orders through our mail order system. When checking out, local customers should select the pick-up option. Mail order customers should select their preferred shipping method. Have fun!
