Scilla natalensis

Scilla natalensis Scilla natalensis

 

One of the most stunning of all bulbs! AND it’s easy to grow! 3’ tall spikes of starry bright or pale blue white flowers keep the excitement going for a month or more in Spring. Each exquisite flower is held outward from the main stalk on a long, delicate blue stem. Easy to grow in a well drained rock garden or container. Scilla natalensis forms rosettes of attractive upright pointed leaves which disappear in Fall. Best performance is achieved by watering & feeding till the leaves turn yellow-this will provide the bulb with plenty of energy for next seasons show. Good cut flower! These plants are seedlings which will take 2-3 years to bloom.
