Info

This amazing South African ledebouria species (scilla relative), introduced by California plantsman Gary Hammer, has proven to be reliable even through our wet, cold winters. The bulbs produce 1' long, deciduous, strap-like, grey-green leaves that are heavily spotted with random liver-colored patterns. Each easy-to-grow, 20" wide clump looks great in the summer rock garden or as a seasonal container plant in colder climates.

A charming version of the common squill, this South African form has wonderful foliage, long narrow, gray-green leaves, evenly spotted and lasting for up to three months before dormancy arrives. Forms clumps to only 6" tall x 20" wide. The flowers are a pale blue and proliferate cheerfully. Sun and dry summers, though summer moisture is tolerated. Don't be fooled, hardier than they look! Frost hardy to a bit below 10 °F, upper USDA zone 7. Does well in containers.
