Scilla siberica is a species of flowering plant in the family Asparagaceae, native to southwestern Russia, the Caucasus, and Turkey. Despite its name, it is not native to Siberia. It is cultivated for its bluebell-like flowers.
Scilla siberica plants themselves don't get much taller than about 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 cm), but they make up for their diminutive size by spreading out and blooming profusely. The tiny bulbs grow and multiply easily and the plants will also self-seed, making scilla easy to grow and a perfect choice for naturalizing. Thin, sword-like leaves grow from the base of the plant and arch outward, allowing the flowers to be seen unobstructed. The flowers of Siberian squill are star or bell-shaped, and they nod and droop on short stems. There are three to five stems per plant, providing plenty of blooms. Bloom time depends on the weather, but it is generally in early spring, March to April. Siberian squill is very cold hardy and can bloom through frost and even some snow.
