Puschkinia scilloides

Puschkinia scilloides

Common name striped squill; Lebanese squill
Family hyacinthaceae
Life cycle perennial bulb
Flowers white/light blue (early spring)
Size 4"

Delightful little early-spring flowers, appearing a week or so after the first crocus in our garden. Ours must have come from a bag of mixed bulbs, and are somewhat randomly scattered about - good for a surprise every now and then. They disappear without a trace by sometime later in spring.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

One or more images of this plant are included in my stock photo catalog
