Often called wild hyacinths, Scillas are excellent as detail in the late-spring garden--small in size but huge in appeal. Plant them in groups amid your spring-blooming bulbs and perennials. They grow a foot high and form clusters of white bell blossoms. Perfect for rock gardens or tucking in here or there around the garden. Plant with Spanish Bluebells, Winter Aconite, and other Scilla varieties for a succession of blooms and a blend of colors. We ship premium grade bulbs that will naturalize quickly in your garden to establish permanent colonies. Order today and enjoy for years.
This showy perennial goes by many names. Besides Litardierei, it is known as Scilla Pratensis, Meadow Squil, Scilla Italica, Scilla Albanica, and other names. Blade-like leaves of 6 to 12 inches length form attractive, upright mounds. Flower stalks rise above the foliage to open clusters of star-shaped, amethyst-blue to violet flowers. They are easy-care and good naturalizers. Plant them once and enjoy years of garden color. 4 to 8 inches tall.
Star-shaped flowers with pale blue petals have dark blue midribs that help the blooms stand out as they pop up in the late winter and early spring garden. Flower stalks grow only 4-6” high, and last for weeks, surrounded by green leaves that stay low to showcase the blooms. This vigorous variety will perform beautifully in sun or shade, and naturalizes easily with little attention. Its short stature makes a delightful container planting with other early spring flowers. Order today – our top-grade bulbs ship for fall planting, ready to deliver a sensational show next spring.
We planted this variety for our spring garden 2017 here in San Antonio, Texas. A lot of our cantaloupes started out with a pronounced curve on the flower end and going for about 2 inches. The flesh was sweet but on the curved part there was no flesh to eat. What caused this? Mary W.
