Scilla siberica is one of Elke's Faves this season...this is what she has to say:
Super early bloomer - tick! Intense blue colour - tick! Easy to grow - tick! Naturalizer, multiplier and one of the most winter hardy of the scillas - tick! What more could I ask for? I am totally in love with this cutie and will definitely drop more into my garden.
Native to Siberia these tiny beauties are best planted in drifts along the edges of sunny pathways and borders where they can be easily viewed close up!
As the name suggests, these hardy little bloomers can be found on the plains of central Russia. Each plant produces three to four flower stems and is one of the best naturalizing bulbs. Combine it with Chionodoxa's for early blooming colour in your garden.
