Scilla Blooming


I wish this was my woods but this is the scilla blooming at the Fabayan Gardens in Batavia IL. They have obviously colonized for many years. I am going to dig up some of my neighbors scilla(with her permission of course) and try and get my woods to look like this in a few years. I love that it looks like water is flowing between the trees.

Gorgeous Rachel! I love scilla. That blue is electric. I added some here last year, bulbs thinned from a client's garden (with her permission of course,) I'm thrilled to see seedlings everywhere!

My favorite for an early spring groundcover. It takes a while to establish this look but so totally worthwhile!
