Scilla peruviana is an easily grown low broad fleshy near ever-green leaved plant which produce a huge flower head of steely -blue flowers especially dramatic when in bud and which add greatly to the richness of the spring tapestry. Their arrival in this country led to the unlikely name when they were originally transported to Bristol on a ship called the Peru which had sailed from the Mediterranean not South America.
Scilla peruviana is easy in good soil and needs very full sun and good light. Plant the bulbs 4" (10cm) deep and 10" (25cm) apart or else pot them up in good compost. They will flower better after a warm summer.
Height 10" (25cm)
