This charming spring bulb is native to Southern Russia and has naturalized throughout Central Europe. It has been known in cultivation since 1796 and became popular in rockeries during the late nineteenth century. Peter Henderson of New York described this Scilla as “a minute gem” in his Handbook of Plants, 1890. In her book The Little Bulbs, Southern garden writer Elizabeth Lawrence delighted in the brilliance of this flower “against the rain-darkened earth.” Siberian Squill is naturalized in an oval flower bed at Monticello.
