Scilla are perennial bulbs with narrow leaves and flat, star-shaped or bell-shaped flowers which are very often blue in colour but can also be white, pink or purple. They are native to Europe, Africa and the Middle-East in woodlands, seashore and subalpine meadows. Scilla are one of the best bulbs for naturalising. You should expect to see your Scilla grow to an approximate height and spread of 20-30cm (8-12in).
The best time for planting Scilla bulbs is in late summer or early autumn at a depth of around 5-10cm deep.so that the tip of the bulb sits just below the surface of the soil. They are best planted in a well-drained soil of loam, chalk or sand within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are happy planted in pots and containers as well as the ground and are best suited to an area of sun or part shade.
Water regularly during the growing period but be careful not to overwater as the bulbs may rot. Leave the foliage to continue growing after the flowers have finished and allow it to fade.
It is possible to propagate Scilla by seed or division.
