More Details

Delicate and pretty, exceptionally early-flowering bulb and invaluable for that as a pot topper to preceed your tulips.

I also love them in a shallow pot as a beautiful living table centre for an outsde table, on a window ledge or doorstep. This scilla is also lovely for naturalising with snowdrops.
