  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March and April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 7/8

    Dainty spikes of up to five nodding, bell-shaped, violet-blue flowers in March and April and slender, strap-shaped, glossy, mid-green leaves. Siberian squills are perfect for naturalising in areas of semi- shade underneath deciduous shrubs. To achieve a naturalistic display scatter bulbs in bold drifts on the ground, planting them where they fall. They originate from the area around the Black Sea so they are extremely robust.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs 8 - 10cm deep and 10cm apart in autumn, in naturalistic drifts where they can remain undisturbed for several years.
  • Harmful if eaten
