Squill

Scilla sibirica

This hardy European native gives spring borders one of the season's best shades of blue with its intense azure blossoms held in loose spikes. Look closely to see the dark blue veins running down the flowers and the blue anthers that protrude from each blossom. Like the later-blooming grape hyacinths, squills are most impactful when planted in drifts under trees or to accent the curve of a flower border. They bloom for 2-3 weeks in early spring and have a light, pleasing fragrance. Voles, rabbits, and deer won't bother these bulbs.
