Puschkinia bulbous plants


Puschkinia bulbous plantsPuschkinia is also known as Striped Squills and is a charming bulbous plant that may be grown in any light, rich mould, provided it is drained well. The bulbs may be separated when the clumps get overcrowded, late in summer, after the tops have died down, being the most suitable time to do so.

If the Puschkinia planted in a warm position it will begin to flower in March, and continue in bloom till May and their height is about eight inch.
