Hi Hannah

At the moment these are starting here (all pictures were taken today).

718816-0
Scilla bifolia ‘rosea’ growing in my neighbours container. Bifolia should be there, so either it’s gone or will be following shortly.

718818-1
Scilla armena flowering here, but some bulbs are just starting to flower.

718820-2
Scilla siberica in the park. Just a few early ones, I think it will take three or four before this field (50-75m2)  will be best.

718822-3
Scilla amoena, new this year in one of my containers. Just showed up about a week ago. No flowers to be seen yet.


Akke & Spot
Mostly bulbs. Gardening in containers and enjoying public green.
Northern part of The Netherlands, a bit above sealevel, zone 8a normally, average precipitation 875 mm.
Lots to discover.

Thank you to those who have replied! I have found it super helpful.

I am also wanting to look at seed morphology. If anyone who grows the following species from seed (see below); I would really appreciate some photos of said seed.

- Scilla melaina
- Scilla ingridiae
- Scilla mischtschenkoana

My email is hannah.hall@pgr.reading.ac.uk, if you want to send me any photo.

Thank you in advance!

Best,
Hannah

I am wanting to know about the leafing time of species in this group, specifically if the species leaf before, with or after flowering.

The species I am interested in are:  ... Scilla cilicica ...

Hi Hannah,

S. cilicica leaves appear well before flowers, both in the garden and under glass.

In the garden the battle between slugs and Scilla is unfair, hopefully in the greenhouses pots are in safe place.
Scilla morisii sown 3 years ago from mother plants started to show its nice flowers. Plants in the garden survived the cold weather we had, so more hardy than litterarure wrote.

It’s bad, ain‘t it? Scilla rosenii seems to be particularly appetising. Last year I had some in the garden, but the slugs ate them all down to ground level, none came back this year  >:( >:(
Suppose I have to keep the remaining seedlings I got in the pot..

Most scillas in my garden are not of interest to slugs, it seems - it´s good to learn there are exceptions!

A pale-blue form of Scilla / Chionodoxa sardensis (?).



For many years I grew a species which is said to come from Demirkent. It´s taller and larger than other scillas, as demonstrated by what I got as Scilla caucasica, on the left.



Maybe Scilla winogradowii?
