SCILLA

All squills have bell-shaped or starlike flowers that come on leafless stems that rise from modest clumps of strap-shaped leaves.

Cold-hardy species look best when naturalized under deciduous trees; grow them in small patches or larger drifts.

Scilla bifolia

Native to Europe, southwest Asia. Each 8-in. stem carries three to eight 1-in.-wide, star-shaped flowers in turquoise blue. White, pale purplish pink, and violet-blue varieties are available. Each bulb produces only two leaves.
