Product Information

Why not grow something a little bit different this year and give the 'Caribbean Lily' a chance to wow any and all garden guests?

Also known as the 'Portuguese Squill', this is a glamorous Mediterranean bulb, which can be seen lighting up the herbaceous borders of grand estates and gardens up and down the country.

An absolute show-stopper that will bring a touch of class to any garden, whether placed in borders, or even on a decking or balcony in your very favourite container.

Looking much like a cross between a hyacinth and an allium, this bulbous perennial forms a rosette of narrowly lance-shaped dark green leaves which are semi evergreen, especially in mild winters.

Eye-catching, violet-blue flowers are the main attraction, each being a 1.5cm wide star, and carried in large, conical heads in early summer - perfect for bringing colour to beds, borders and patio pots when tulips have faded, and perennials are still gearing up.

Supplied as 3 bulbs, size 16/18 ready to plant out in autumn. They will ideally be planted in well-drained soil, in full sun or partial shade.

Top Tips

In the wild, the bulbs grow at or just above the soil surface, so to copy these conditions, plant the bulbs shallowly so the very tip of the bulb is right at the soil surface, spaced about 20-25cm (8-10in) apart.

Care Information

  • Scilla peruviana should be grown in well-drained soil with added grit or sharp sand. The Peruvian lily will not tolerate soil that is heavy and waterlogged.
  • During the summer months, the soil should stay as dry as possible while the bulbs are dormant, then, when in growth, plants will need regular watering before, during and right after flowering.
  • In the wild, the bulbs grow at or just above the soil surface, so to copy these conditions, plant the bulbs shallowly so the very tip of the bulb is right at the soil surface, spaced about 20-25cm (8-10in) apart.
  • In colder areas, Scilla peruviana can be grown in containers. Plant the bulbs as above and feed before and immediately after flowering.
  • Once the foliage fades, stop watering and put the pot in a protected area where it won’t get too much rain. Bring the container indoors in autumn to protect the bulbs from cold.
