White Siberian Squill Scilla
Scilla siberica Pure white clusters of delicate pendent bells. The bees of early spring would love it if more gardeners would try this lovely white form of squill. Naturalizes well, blooms for several weeks.
Prefers cool places, under shrubs, in short grass. May be the most shade-tolerant bulb but also performs well in sun.
6–8" tall. Early Spring blooms, Z2-8. 8cm/up bulbs.

The Royal General Bulbgrowers Association in Holland (Koninklijke Algemeene Vereeniging voor Bloembollencultuur, or KAVB) gives this large group of flowers the name Miscellaneous Bulbs. The expensive catalogs call them specialty or accent bulbs; some call them minor or dwarf bulbs (even though some of the fritillaries are huge!); Louise Beebe Wilder covered most of them in her 1936 classic Adventures with Hardy Bulbs. Whatever you call them, most are uncommonly sweet, delicate, colorful, and completely welcome in spring.
