Scilla and relatives 2022
« on: March 22, 2022, 06:54:39 PM »
Hi Nik, I think this is luciliae, as there isn´t much of a defined white zone in the center. This hasn´t 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.

And a more double one.

Thank you for the ID, Mariette! They are volunteers.
The ones I just posted in bud are forbesii. I planted the bulbs last fall.

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.

I like the way my Scilla bifolia tend to produce interesting seedlings.

Very nice, Luc!

Scilla greilhuberi does well in my garden, even self-seeding.



Scilla mesopotamica survived two winters without protection, I hope it will prove hardy in future years as well.



A chance seedling, probably Scilla x allenii.



What I once bought as Scilla bifolia fl.pl. ex Norman Stevens doesn´t really look like Scilla bifolia with its white anthers and pollen.



Does anybody know which kind of species this is?

Some years ago, I buyed Scilla bifolia ´Alba´. Since last year, blue forms with white ovary are popping up in my garden. Are these Scilla bifolia or hybrids, as a friend suggested?

Hello,

I am a PhD student working on the taxonomy and evolution of Hyacinthinae and currently I am specifically looking at the Scilla siberica group, or more recently classified as Othocallis.

I am wanting to know about the leafing time of species in this group, specifically if the species leaf before, with or after flowering. However, literature is thin and I don't have access to living material of all the species. Therefore, I am really hoping that people on this thread might be able to help.

The species I am interested in are:

- Scilla siberica
- Scilla cilicica
- Scilla mischtschenkoana
- Scilla mesopotamica
- Scilla siberica subsp. armena
- Scilla ingridiae
- Scilla amoena
- Scilla melaina

I really do appreciate any help you can give and always happy to chat more about my project!

Best,
Hannah

Dear Hannah,  typically armena flowers arise between very short leaves. So something between before the leaves an with them, I would say. Hope this helps!
I‘m hampered by the file size restriction of the forum software, but perhaps I’ll try to upload a typical image of armena emerging later.
BR,
