With Camas leichtleinii you wind up with a nicer bulb if you break the neck off the young bulbs. Otherwise laid on side sometimes makes a curved bulb in 1-2 years. However no problem. C. quamash bulbs are rounder shape. We're hand placing our larger Fritillaria bulbs and lily. Erythronium is thrown in like Camas and Dichelostemma.
