Product Information

Scilla siberica (Siberian squill) is a delightful perennial bulb that produces dainty spikes of delicate, bell-shaped flowers atop clumps of compact, narrow-leaved foliage with upright, purplish stems. Flowering from April to May, with up to five pretty blooms per stem, the violet-blue petals have a darker hue running up their spines. These hardy bulbs can create an enchanting carpet of nodding blue flowers, when even a breath of wind can make them dance.

Reaching a height of up to 20cm, they are well placed in the front of beds and borders, rock and gravel gardens, or underplanting hedges and shrubs. Perfect for naturalising, plant them in drifts in grassy or woodland areas. They are equally good for planting in containers.

Being native to Russia, this hardy perennial is vigorous and easy to grow. Clumps will form quickly, with a spread of 5-10cm. By early to mid-summer, foliage will die back, at which time offsets can be divided and replanted. The plants lie dormant through autumn and winter, re-emerging the following spring in ever-greater numbers.

Immensely pretty and fully deserving of its RHS Award of Garden Merit, Scilla siberica's nectar and pollen-rich flowers are great for attracting bees. This woodland favourite will return year on year, with bigger and better displays. Plant them with other spring-flowering bulbs for wonderful contrast.

Supplied as a pack of 20 bulbs, size 6/7 ready for planting out in autumn.

Top Tips

  • Plant as soon as you receive your bulbs, as early as you can in autumn so that the bulbs can establish a good root system before winter.
  • Place around the bases of trees and deciduous shrubs, where they will naturalise easily; or scatter in grass or woodland and plant where they fall for a natural effect.
  • Once flowers and leaves have died back, remove offsets or divide large clumps for replanting.

Care Information

  • Plant 8-10cm deep, 10cm apart, in moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil, in full sun, shade or partial shade.
  • Will tolerate sheltered or exposed positions.
  • Water well after planting.
  • Leaves can be removed once they have yellowed and died back.
  • Scilla siberica is self-seeding and quickly develops into large clumps.
