I like it very much too, and posted a picture of it on the wiki recently. I 
got mine the same place Jerry fif, from Michael Salmon's Monocot Nursery in 
England. I don't think it would survive very well in a Pacific Northwest 
winter in the open garden, though (like Jerry, I grow it under "glass"). 
These broad-leafed Mediterranean scillas that emerge in fall tend to freeze 
and rot if they are very wet when a hard frost hits them.
