Scilla hyacinthoides Blue Arrow grows up to 3 feet tall with stems of starry light blue flowers. Scillas can be grown in many areas of the garden but really prefer the hotter spots were they will get plenty of sun. Soils should be fertile and not prone to drying out.
Cultivate soils to a depth of 15cms and plant bulbs 10cms deep and 10cms apart, best effect is from groups of 3 or more. Can be left to naturalise from year to year but do not forget to feed them during the leaf and flower stage.
