Puschkinia libanotica | Striped Squill | Pack of 50 Flower Bulbs

A delicate but hardy little plant producing icy blue, star-shaped blooms

A diminutive little bulb, Puschkinia libanotica (but most commonly known as Striped Squill) is a wonderful plant for adding some intricate floral interest to your springtime garden. Abundant, starry flowers cover their short but sturdy stalks, and further sport an icy shade of blue with a darker stripe across each petal. Although tough, this plant's small stature means that it is best placed at the front of a border, ideally planted in groups too. Why not combine with some taller bulbs such as Daffodils for a harmony of yellow and blue?

Growing Advice

It is best to make sure that you plant at the distance and depth recommended. If too deep, the bulb may rot and the shoots emerge late. If too shallow, the bulb may emerge unevenly and have spindly growth.

Once shoots emerge, water thoroughly and regularly to encourage their growth. Fertiliser isn't essential, but it will help blooms to look their best. Simply apply a slow release fertiliser upon planting, or alternatively apply liquid fertiliser once the growing season begins.
