Cute, cute, cute! This easy-to-grow little South African bulb is just a delightful addition to the rock garden. The narrow, olive-green leaves with dark purple markings are held upright in what eventually becomes a nice colony (1' spread in 5 years). In early spring, the clumps are adorned with miniature, pink, scilla-like racemes.

A just plain pretty plant with lance-shaped, prominently dark purple pinstriped foliage. Produces racemes of mid-pink flowers, quite floriferous. Needs well drained but the soil shouldn't dry out all the way.

Sweet and easy bulb from South Africa with 4", narrow, olive-green leaves, upright and marked with purple stripes and spots. Decorative in themselves, and more so in spring when adorned with racemes of pink, scilla-like flowers. Spreads slowly to form a 1' wide clump. Easy in the garden in sun or part shade where good drainage can protect from too much winter wet. Tolerates some summer drought but accepts summer water as well. Frost hardy in USDA zone 7.

Tender yet incredibly easy South African bulb which increases freely and is so rewarding with quite incidental care. Nifty container plant with green bladed leaves with radical maroon stripes and pink Scilla flowers in late spring. It's a sweety and needs to be overwintered inside and cool.
