Siberian squill

18 03 2012

One of my favorite little spring flowers is Scilla siberica ‘Spring Beauty’—also known as Spring Beauty scilla, Wood squill or Siberian squill (Liliaceae family). Tiny and delicate bright porcelain blue flowers grow on 4-6 inch stalks from bulbs in early spring 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.

It was a spectacular spring day and there were lots of walkers, joggers and picnickers at Green Spring Gardens this afternoon, as well as plenty of spring blooms to shoot. Stay tuned for more new images!
