(4-6" tall) White Squill brightens woodland gardens and
border plantings with loose flower spikes lasting several weeks. The small
blooms provide an early source of nectar and pollen for bees. White squill is a
favorite bulb for massing around the base of deciduous trees and shrubs, where
plants receive ample sun during bloom time before the trees leaf out. White
Squill is hardy in zones 4-9, where the deer and squirrel resistant bulbs
slowly naturalize and spread to form small clumps. Provide a site with full to
partial sun during bloom time and a well-draining soil. Lovely planted in
drifts among other spring bulbs. Allow the strappy foliage to die back
naturally as plants enter summer dormancy. White Squill received an Award of
Garden Merit from the Royal Horticulture Society.
