Scilla peruviana Portuguese squill
This beautiful flower is native to the southern Iberian peninsula, Italy and NW Africa. It flowers from February to May. It was always thought that it came from Peru, but actually the bulbs arrived centuries ago on a ship named Peru! The leaves are linear, 1`4cm wide and 20¬40cms long, and the flowering stem is 15¬40cms tall. They appear to be fairly solitary plants.
