Lovely flower spikes of blue Spanish bells. Great to plant under trees or with sun (late flowering).
Scilla: (Zones 1,2,3,4) - See also General Bulb Growing Instructions
Performs best in the cool areas of Australia, as the cold ensures that the stem elongates for elegant blooms. If planting in warmer climates, ensure bulbs spend at least 6 weeks in the crisper. Wonderful in pots, and companion plant with white muscari and violets. Plant March to May, 10cm deep and 10cm apart, flowers late spring.
