Siberian Squill

A beautiful azure blue in march, this stunning bulb gives a new joy to the spring season.

Siberian Squill (Scilla siberica) produces dainty spikes of five to six nodding bell-shaped flowers. They look fantastic planted en-mass to create bold drifts, where plants will quickly naturalise and self seed increasing in number and impact. The nectar rich flowers are an early treat both for us and for pollinating insects such as bees, moths and butterflies. A great choice for naturalising in lawns and also useful for areas of dappled shade, beneath deciduous shrubs and trees, where they compliment other delicate woodland plants such as wood anemone (Anemone nemerosa). For a more striking contrast grow with yellow dwarf daffodils such as Narcissus 'Tete a tete'. Works well in pots which allow the delicate flowers to be appreciated at close quarters.

A rich blue in colour that is hard to beat, Scilla are a must for the spring garden.

Plant Care & Advice

Scilla siberica (Siberian Squill) grows well in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in either full sun or partial shade. A humus-rich soil is preferred and so adding lots of organic matter will help to create a soil that is most suitable. Either remove the pot and plant into well prepared soil by digging a hole twice the size of the pot, or simply plunge the pot into a border or larger container and remove it once the flowers have been enjoyed. Plant bulbs 8-10cm deep in late summer or early autumn, scattering the bulbs to create naturalistic drifts. Can be planted and naturalised into grass where the bulbs will flower and then become dormant before mowing commences. In pots use a loam based compost with added grit and leaf mould and then water freely when in growth but keep dry when dormant in the summer. Feeding is no needed and both in the ground and in pots faded leaves and flowers can be removed as needed.
