Description

Pink twin-leaf squill is one of the tiniest plants grown outdoors at the Chicago Botanic Garden. You will see clusters of these dainty bulbs in the Bulb Garden, sending up four-inch spikes of starry pink six-petaled flowers in mid-April. This cultivar has even smaller flowers than the species. The unopened buds at the top of the spike are deep pink, and as they open they fade to a soft rosy-pink, with carnation pink anthers. They are best planted in large groups because a single bulb could easily be over-looked. They are fully hardy and require no special care. After blooming, the flower stalks and tiny pairs of linear leaves will fade away. Be careful to note their location so you don't accidentally dig into them and don't put heavy mulch on them or they will be smothered.

크기가 작기 때문에, 심을 때는 큰 무리로 같이 심는 것이 좋습니다. 추위에 강하고 특히 돌봐줄 것은 없습니다. 꽃이 진 후에는 꽃대와 선형잎들은 떨어집니다.
