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.
Cultivate soils to a depth of 15cms and plant bulbs 10cms deep and 10-15cms apart. Can be left to naturalise from year to year but do not forget to feed them during the leaf and flower stage.
