Scilla peruviana White Moon was introduced at the 2019 Chelsea Flower Show. It is the white form of the old favourite and provides large spikes of between 20 and 100 white star shaped flowers.
Scillas are also known as the squills and are mostly blue in colour although we do have some lovely whites such as White Moon.
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.
Scillas such as Scilla peruviana White Moon can be grown in many areas of the garden. 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. Can be left to naturalise from year to year but do not forget to feed them during the leaf and flower stage.

Aspect: Full sun if possible although they will be ok in partial shade.
