The scoop on Pushkinia / Striped Squill

Striped squill is one of those poke-the-bulbs-in-the-ground-and-walk-away plants. Easy, happy to naturalize and undemanding, pushkinia needs no special soil, light, fertilizer or protection from critters.

Why Grow Pushkinia?

  • White to palest blue flowers with darker blue pinstripes are clustered along little 6" stems
  • Related to chionodoxa and scilla, pushkinia mixes well with these cousins
  • Deer, rabbits and rodents find pushkinia distasteful, no nibbling here
  • Super economical early season flowers

An excellent choice for planting generously under deciduous shrubs and trees. Start the colony growing this season!
