Violet Squill Ledebouria

Violet Squill Ledebouria flowers

This is a cool, tiny delight. The plant is about 6″ tall with a 12″ spread. The flower stalks are tiny and the flowers tinier, but aren’t they so cool?

It will wilt and die back in a drought, but will usually bounce back after watering, keep moist if you can.

Grows in full sun to part shade.

This plant can go dormant in the summer, cut back on watering when it does.

When you plant this plant place bulbs just under the soil.

These died back to the ground after several hard freezes last winter and re-appeared early April. They are struggling with the extreme heat and drought of summer.
