Siberian Squill: A Field Guide
Scilla siberica is an arresting flower despite its diminutive size, thanks to what gardening writer Henry Mitchell called its “sharp, gentian-blue good looks.”
Siberian Squill grows no taller than six inches but is so prone to naturalizing—some might call its behavior invasive—that it will quickly spread a blue carpet in a woodland or garden bed. Fragrant and drought tolerant,
S. siberica flowers in early spring and looks lovely mingling with snowdrops, wood anemones, and glory-of-the-snow.
