    I saw this in a garden near here last year, but it was a garden with lots of moisture being right by a river, I think my garden would be too hot for it.. It is a wonderful colour. Sometimes, Liz, I wonder where you put all the amazing plants you have?!

    • Chloris says:

      It actually comes from the Mediterranean, not Peru. It needs lots of sun. This is growing in the front garden. I have had it for 3 years and this is the first time it has flowered, so I am delighted, it is a gorgeous colour.
      I use a shoe horn to cram everything in.

        I loved how you had planted your front garden when I saw it last year. The Scilla was in light shade when I saw it here, if I decide to make a shade border, I will definitely try it.

    Beautiful little flowers, thanks for sharing, Chloris!

    Lovely little flowers. xx

  4. My favorite color. 🙂

  5. Chloris says:

    It really is the most vibrant blue, almost metallic.

  6. Very nice flower, it looks like a tuft ! 🙂 I like blue flower

    So pretty! The bloom is yet another example of the difference in our climates. Mine bloomed in February before being quickly taken out in March by unexpected heat.

    How delicate and dainty….it was certainly worth waiting for!xxx

    • Chloris says:

      It certainly is worth the wait, in fact I had forgotten it was there so it took me by surprise. A very nice surprise. It is a gorgeous flower.

    Such a lovely flower – they look like a great substitute for agapanthus

    Now that’s a plant that knows color. Beautiful.

    A lovely cluster of shiny blue stars Chloris – and how lovely to have it flowering after that 3 year wait… And I must try the shoe horn trick – I wonder if I could manage one in each hand… 😉

  12. Chloris says:

    It is very special. I am wondering how to propagate it, I would like lots.

  13. I didn’t know this species of Scilla existed. Far showier than its Siberian cousin!

  14. Chloris says:

    It is stunning, despite its name it comes from the Mediterranean. It is indeed much showier than Scilla siberica but it doesn’t t seed around unfortunately.

  15. Debra says:

    Love it. When It comes to blue flowers I am easy but this one is really outstanding.

  16. we have used Scilla in mixed flower bunches where I work as it is a great filler and the colour is super, as your image shows.
