Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
SCILLA siberica 'Spring Beauty'
Siberian Squill, Spring Beauty Siberian Squill
This is by far one of the best blues for the early spring garden. Delicate, nodding, vivid blue flowers adorn this tiny early-blooming ephemeral before it disappears underground for another season.
Siberian wood squill is a diminutive bulb that originates from Russia and western Asia. Very early in the season, each plant produces fine strap-like foliage and small stems topped with four to six drooping five-petaled, bell-shaped flowers. Once the flowers are spent, these plants will set seed and quickly retreat into the ground for the rest of the growing season. Their dying foliage can easily be raked away for quick clean up.
This squill is a fast spreader but does not compete with other garden plants. It prefers a woodland setting and organic-rich, evenly moist soil. For maximum appeal, plant Siberian squill among other colorful early spring bloomers like crocus, snowdrops and early daffodils. It also looks super planted with other early blue flowers like those of Anemone blanda ‘Blue Shades’ and Chionodoxa.
