To plant these Scilla Bulbs I use a long 1" drill bit. I drilled the hole alittle extra deep and then back filled soil to proper planting depth for the Scilla bulb...I added just a little bit of sand in the root area so that the bulbs had a little drainage...These bulbs do best under dicidous trees...The bulbs would cook in the full sun...My trees leaf out after flowering of bulbs are done...The bluish purple blooms are showey and last for about 2 weeks...As always let your greenery fade as it helps feed the bulbs below for next years energy...Our neighbors all asked, "What are those flowers called.....They wanted some...I'm waitng to see if they will spead over the years...I just love these flowers....I forgot to mention, I planted these flower bulbs right in our lawn , so let folage dye back before you mow over them....And I added bone meal to the backfill soil...Just a little bit...I will order more for the south end of our propery...American Meadows friend, Nina

I was being adventuresome when I ordered these, and I think I completely forgot about them until I saw them pop up one day in late-Febraury since we had quite a mild winter. They are very small so I almost missed them. I think I may move them to a more prominent spot. Overall, they are a nice addition to the daffodils and crocuses.

      Comments about American Meadows Siberian Squill Bulbs:

      I always wanted to have them in my garden as they reminded me my childhood when I picked them for bouquets in the woods. They all showed up and each had a stem with buds. Right now 4 of them are in bloom and more are coming. They are the first flowers blooming in the season, which really makes you feel that the spring is around the corner.

        these lovely little things are so beautiful, but very delicate. I only have a few of them showing so far & no blooms yet (one tiny little blue bud!) i put them in a mailbox garden with borage & blue morning glories.

                    I got these as a free gift with an order and threw them into my flower bed by my front door, then promptly forgot about them. Until they popped up. These have beautiful bright blue blooms on them. They really stand out and command attention. You can see these little flowers from down the street, they are so bright. A truly wonderful surprise.

                      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
