Scilla / Hyacithiodes (Bluebells)

Scilla Bulbs

There are many different species of Scilla; we carry 4 types of them.  All are small late winter to early spring blooming bulbs that are hardy and grow well in colder climates.  They naturalize very well under trees, shrubs and in the grass.  
Scilla Siberica can easily be forced and naturalize very well.
