Description from Brent and Becky's Bulbs

‘Sacajawea’-creamy edged, variegated form of a white flowered leichtlinii found by our friend Aad Kroon. We told him the story of the Indian woman, Sacajawea, and how she helped to keep Lewis and Clark alive during their expediton of North America by feeding them ‘quamash’ bulbs. We’re happy he chose to honor the brave young and smart Indian woman by naming this plant after her!
Tall spikes with many starry flowers with long, upright swordlike leaves; native to America, it was sometimes used by the Indians as a food crop; tolerates damp meadows and pond edges as well as heavy clay soils; seems to bloom well in either part shade or full sun; late spring/early summer; zones 3-8.
