Description

Pendulous bluer than blue stars seem to have been caught in mid-flight by Scilla siberica, more commonly known as Siberian squill, a sweet little plant that thrives in any well-drained soil and settles in as a perennial in most gardens. Get stellar performance when you choose this little beauty as an edging for flower beds or as a border fronting shrubberies. Mass it under deciduous trees or use it to turn a low-traffic area of lawn into a wildflower meadow with perhaps a little help from crocuses for variety. Try Scilla siberica in a rockery for a splash of intense blue or use it as a colourful background for other flowering bulbs.
