Scilla siberica ~ Color for the Weekend ~

Scilla siberica in our Back Woodland has been growing in numbers. They have reseeded around this little rock garden at the base of our maple tree. Violet come up here for May.

  1. Waiting to see mine soon...been cold so much has been delayed again. One of my favs along with grape hyacinths for the blue color.

  2. I love this clear pale blue; anything that is happy and spreads is always welcome in my garden. Christina

  3. Ours have just started flowering now and they are seeding about too. They are such lovely little flowers in a gorgeous shade of blue, I try to remember to add more each autumn as you just can't have too many!

  4. It looks so sweet tucked in between the rocks! My scilla are just beginning to poke their stems out. Yours have naturalized so well - they must love that spot.

  5. Yes, I love this bulb! Ours is just starting to bloom, it's so wonderful how this one can spread and create fields of blue.

  8. Such beautiful little flowers, and in blue! This year they seem to pop up on several blogs. I'll have to see if they'd do well in our shady, wettish garden cause I adore them. In my garden yellow-time has started again ;-) Even some tiny tulips are joining in for the first time this year.
    Have a beautiful new week,
    Marian

  9. Thanks all! I was out enjoying the sun and planning a garden for some new friends this weekend. Thank you for all of your kind comments! I so appreciate having gardening friends to share in my joy of small garden treasures! I hope you all do see true spring this week!

  11. I'll have to add those to my bulb order for next year. Any idea whether "critters" enjoy them? I've had some issues with the crocuses!

    1. Kimberley,
      Good news! Scilla siberica should be among the most critter-resistent of spring bulbs. They are listed just after daffodils. And as for crocuses, the smaller Crocus tommasinianus (which we have in our back yard) are the best bet. Hope that helps!
