Scilla Flower is also known as Squill, is a genus of about 50 to 80 bulb-forming perennial herbs. It belongs to the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Scilloideae, native to woodlands, subalpine meadows, and seashores. The Scilla Flower is available throughout Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Scillas have small bell-like flowers that dangle from thin 3 to 6-inch stems.
Most gardeners love blue Scilla which mixes brightly with pinks, purples, whites and contrasts crisply with yellows and golds. The scilla family offers some of the best blues to be found anywhere. From the huge, striking blue of Scillia Peruviana to the smaller. With the carefree blues of tubergeniana and blue purples of amethystine these sparklers belong in every garden that celebrates spring.
Most of the ones you will see in gardens, and they are comes in beautiful colors of blue, purple, lavender, pink, and white scillas too. They are lovely in situations where their delicate beauty can be appreciated planted in woodland gardens, under the light shade of a deciduous tree, in rock gardens, or naturalized in lawns.

Modern hybrids come from a number of species, most commonly Scilla siberica. S. tubergeniana has fewer flowers on a stem but more stems to a plant S. bifolia, the twin leafed squill has more open flowers.
The precise number of Scilla species in the genus depends on which proposals to split the genus are accepted. S. hispanica (S. campanulata), Spanish bluebell, is quite tall, usually over a foot, and a good choice for shady location. The hardiest of all this is S. siberica, which will survive in cool climate plants.
But if you want to grow S. peruviana, which is a foot tall, typically purple. It is, like the names of many bulbs, S. peruviana’s name is a geographical muddle. Though both its Latin name, and its common name, “Cuban lily”, give it a Latin American origin, it is really native to the Mediterranean region.
