Scilla siberica

Scilla siberica is also called Wood Hyacinths or Siberian Squill. Each mature bulb will produce 3-4 thin scapes (4-6″ high) with 1-3, drooping, bell-like, deep blue flowers with blue anthers per scape. Flowers appear in early spring shortly after Galanthus (snowdrops). Foliage is medium green and strap-like with 6″ long leaves per bulb. Easily grown in average, medium wet, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Plant bulbs 1-2″ deep in fall. Tough, extremely cold hardy, low-maintenance plants that will naturalize easily by bulb offshoots and self-seeding.

In early spring, Scilla siberica provides intense blue color to the rock garden or border front. Effective when massed in front of or around shrubs or trees, or planted in large groupings with other early spring bulbs. This looks wonderful planted in mass as sweeping drifts in a woodland setting, in a naturalized area or along shady banks. Also may be naturalized in the lawn in the same manner as crocus.
