My Silver Squill is blooming!!!
Can you see the white blooms leaning over on the red ladybug in the one picture? It is difficult to get a good pic of the long stalks! These are the neatest plants...a bulb for a root, and the color of the leaves is really groovy! They are spotty...I just love them so much. I was looking to add more plants in my yard with white blooms, and look here...I have another one!!! I can hardly wait to see them start making more...I want a ton of these!
They only grow to 6 inches, evidently, and are good in zones 10a, 10b, and 11, which is right in my little section of the world (South Florida). They like full sun, which I am so happy to hear, because they are planted in one of my succulent tires.
Silver Squill are drought resistant (thank God, hee hee hee)!!!
Don't you agree they are just really cool, and ultra great??? I'm in love!
