In online photos, this low-growing squill looks best when massed together. My "mass" is only two, but they still look OK.

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

- Seed from NARGS '09/'10 exchange. Baggy 70F (2w) - 35F (4w) - 70F (7%G, 11d)
- Same seed as above, cold-stored through summer. Baggy 35F (6w) - 70F (69%G, 3-24d)
Starting with a longer cold treatment seems to have done the trick.
