Enter Siberian Squill

Scilla siberica (Siberian squill or wood squill) is a spring ephemeral that brightens my garden and my mood with it's bright blue flowers each year. As the Iris reticulata are finishing, Siberian Squill and Daffodils emerge. It's short stature makes it a better choice than Tulips or Daffodils for planting in lawns. It will spread by seed to form large colonies that go dormant by the time lawn needs to be mowed.
