Spring Beauty

1 04 2009

Scilla siberica ‘Spring Beauty’—also known as Spring Beauty Scilla or Siberian Squill (Liliaceae family). Showy blue flowers bloom from bulbs in April in full sun to part shade. Tough and extremely cold hardy (Zones 2-8), this low-maintenance plant naturalizes easily by bulb offshoots and through self-seeding. Learn more about this flower here. This site states that this particular Squill is great for forcing indoors. Guess what I’m growing indoors next winter!

Yes, lovely Scilla; lovely shot (as are so many of your postings). I know the name Spring Beauty as a common wildflower (Claytonia virginica) in the northeast deciduous woods.

I love this one. The detail in this one is amazing, and the colour so cool!
