Striped Squill, Lebanon Squill, Puschkinia libanotica


Realize an impressive display with this lovely bulb, Striped Squill (Puschkinia libanotica or Puschkinia scilloides). A great naturalizer, it will come back year after year and even multiply from seed under favorable conditions of light shade and moisture-retentive soil.

  • Quite short (up to 8 inches tall - 20 cm), this award-winning bulb still makes a striking impact with its pale blue, bell-shaped flowers, accentuated with deeper blue stripes. A real charmer!
  • Flowering in early spring, it is fragrant, trouble-free, inexpensive and quite versatile: great for borders, rock gardens, small gardens, under trees and shrubs or even in lawns. Spectacular when planted en masse.
  • Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society (2012), this bulb was named after a Russian botanist, Count Mussim-Puschkin, who collected them.
