Description

Scilla peruviana provides large spikes of between 20 and 100 violet blue star shaped flowers with 12 inch lance shaped leaves.

Scillas such as Scilla peruviana are also known as the squills and are mostly blue in colour although we do have some lovely whites.

The scilla family of spring-blooming bulbs includes some of the best bulbs for naturalizing. When planted beneath shrubs and shade trees, in woodlands and beside streams and ponds, they multiply quickly and will give you waves of color year after year.
