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 siberica

Native to Russia. Each 3- to 6-in. stem bears several flowers shaped like flaring bells. Typical color is intense medium blue, but there are varieties in white, lilac pink, and light to dark shades of violet blue, often with darker stripes.
