Description

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

Care Tips

Can be naturalised easily In grass, scatter them in drifts in a semi-shady area and plant them where they fall.
