Siberian squill (Scilla siberica), also known as the wood squill or spring beauty, is a small perennial plant native to Siberia.
This plant grows to 15 cm (6 inches) tall and produces small, violet-blue flowers with blue pollen early in the spring.
It spends the winter as a small bulb, perhaps as big as the end of a little finger. It puts up short, somewhat grassy foliage very early in the spring, produces one or more tiny blue flowers, goes to seed, and disappears by summer.
This plant can be planted into a lawn, and, if it naturalizes, can give a very pretty early spring display. It can tolerate light foot traffic while dormant and transplants easily. They are best grown in cool, moist locations with well-drained soil of average fertility. They are very cold-tolerant. It does not do well in hot and/or dry conditions, though it does well in sun or light shade.
