Scilla, also known as Squill, Bluebells and Wild Hyacinth, are members of the lily family
which have been cultivated for centuries by Europeans and Americans. Like Hyacinths, they
are probably native to Turkey, Syria and Lebanon, but found their way to Europe many centuries
ago. They were known in America by the 1600's.
They will easily naturalize in shady or semi-shady areas and deer do not usually eat them.
They are best when planted in masses. Plant 5" deep and 4-6" apart.
