South African Squill Flowers

My amazingly prolific Scilla violaceae have decided to reward me further--by flowering! This inflorescence is from the squill that was the original one I purchased, which was in bloom when I purchased it, too (Really, is that the photo I published? I thought I had better ones, but I can't find them to save my life. I remember it being difficult to focus--each flower is only millimeters wide.).

I am so psyched! Maybe this time I won't lose the one fruit that develops like I did last time (it literally just disappeared when I accidentally bumped the plant) and I can try to grow these from seed, as well. Or, at least, I can hope the seeds are viable and will germinate if they develop at all!

  1. You're like the second garden blogger this week to post about this. Do you all have a secret Scilla violaceae society?

  2. Eh? Who else? I'll cut their ovaries!


    Inside joke. I won't actually cut anyone's ovaries. Well, not over them stealing my ideas and preposting making it seem as if I'm the one stealing their ideas.

  3. This is a very nice plant. The flowers are a little 'dainty' but very exciting regardless! Don't worry, I won't be having any of that Datura (at least not the purple ones, the white ones however... jk)
