Scilla and relatives 2022
« on: March 22, 2022, 06:54:39 PM »
Hi Nik, I think this is luciliae, as there isnīt much of a defined white zone in the center. This hasnīt more than 2-3 flowers, usually,
whereas forbesii syn. siehei may have many more. Also, the flower of luciliae is larger and of a more wavy form. The pic shows siehei above and luciliae below.

My patch of Puschkinia didn't flower very well this year, but it sure is getting bigger.

Second picture is Scilla Siberica Alba, I don't think it gets enough light. Lily of the Valley is thick in that spot. It's seedling around in the grass. Collected all the seeds that I could and made another bed.
