White Squill

Scilla mischtschenkoana

White squill is an unsung early bloomer that deserves to be better known. It pushes its blue-lined, milk white flowers through fallen leaves even before the crocuses begin to bloom. Thrives in deciduous shade (but does not require it) and has the ability to settle in and bloom for many years.

Item # 6007
Height 4—6 inches
Sunlight Full or Part
Soil Well drained
Flower Color White with Blue
Bulb Size 8cm+
?
Bulb size is determined by the circumference around the largest part of the bulb. Colorblends only delivers top size bulbs. Large bulbs produce more or larger flowers than small bulbs.
USDA Zones 3a—8b
?
Hardy in USDA zones 3a to 8b in the South or 9b on the West Coast. Prechill in zones 7b and warmer in the South, Southwest, and California.
Bloom Time Very Early
Bloom times are relative within the spring bulb season, which varies from place to place and year to year. They are intended to help you plan a sequence of bloom from Very Early season to Very Late season. About two weeks separate Early from Mid and Mid from Late. The start and duration of bloom is heavily dependent on the weather. Warm temperatures speed up growth and flowering; cold temperatures slow them down.

Planting Instructions

Full sun or partial shade. Well-drained soil. Blue squill can self-sow with abandon: If left undisturbed, a handful of bulbs may eventually become a thick, brilliant blue carpet in spring. Can be naturalized in a lawn if you’re willing to hold off on mowing until the seed capsules open and the foliage has yellowed.

Depth of Planting Hole 3 inches
Spacing 3 inches apart

Prechilling: For Warm Southern Climates

For bulbs that are to be planted in mild-winter climates, it is possible to supplement winter cold by placing the bulbs in a refrigerator for 6–12 weeks before planting.
