Description

Siberian squill is a common and distinctive little minor bulb that blooms in April. Pure white, nodding, open bell-shaped flowers with six petals grow atop four-inch scapes. The clue that this is a Siberian squill and no other common species is the presence of blue anthers. There is usually only one to three flowers per scape, but each bulb produces several stalks. The leaves are narrow and slightly shorter than the flower stalks. To make up for their dainty size, they are usually planted in masses. Their dainty size also makes them good for a rock garden. They are ephemeral, and the foliage will disappear during summer.
