Description

Lebanon striped squill is classed as a minor bulb because of its size, but it is a major asset to a well-rounded bulb garden. Tucked between tulips and narcissus, it covers the ground with six-inch spikes of pale blue flowers with a show that lasts for up to three weeks beginning in late March in the Chicago area. The bell-shaped flowers measure about 3/4" across, with six petals that are white with a true blue stripe. The stamens in the center are fused into a little yellow crown that helps separate it from the true squills in the genus Scilla. Each stiffly upright spike can have up to about 20 flowers. It is very long-lived and not bothered much by squirrels or chipmunks. The only problem with this species is that it tends to re-seed into lawns, often popping up 20 feet away. This species is native from the Caucasus to Turkey and Iraq.
