Description

Scilla hyacinthoides Blue Arrow grows up to 3 feet tall with stems of starry light blue flowers.  Scilla hyacinthoides Blue Arrow needs a hot and sunny position in the garden but do not get excessively dry.  Scillas are also known as the squills and are mostly blue in colour although we do have some lovely whites.

The scilla family of spring-blooming bulbs includes some of the best bulbs for naturalizing. When planted beneath shrubs and shade trees, in woodlands and beside streams and ponds, they multiply quickly and will give you waves of color year after year.

Cultivation Instructions

Scillas can be grown in many areas of the garden but really prefer the hotter spots were they will get plenty of sun. Soils should be fertile and not prone to drying out. Cultivate soils to a depth of 15cms and plant bulbs 10cms deep and 10cms apart, best effect is from groups of 3 or more. Can be left to naturalise from year to year but do not forget to feed them during the leaf and flower stage.
