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).

Plant Information

(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.
