The tall flower stems support large plumes of soft blue flowers. The flower show will last around a month with a succession of blooms.

Each plume is made up of around 100 star shaped flowers. Each of these flowers is around 1.5cm across and has a delicious honey perfume. They are even suitable for cutting and make fabulous and unusual additions to arrangements.

Blue Squill should be planted so the neck is exposed. The bulbs will grow large, averaging 10-15cm across. The basal foliage forms at the time of flowering. The grey-green, lance like leaves are broad and upright, usually with a purple lustre. The foliage grows to around 20cm with the flower and extends up to 60cm as the flower fades.

Blue Squill bulbs may take a season or so to settle in before flowering but are worth the wait. Plant in rockeries, pots or beds or border in clumps or swathes. The bulbs grow during summer and will require water to flower at their best. They remain dormant in winter.
