> I couldn't resist posting a second photo of Scilla lingulata ssp. ciliolata
> on the wiki, since the one I photographed last year is even better this year:
> What a cheerful little bulb to have flowering in mid-November -- and it
> stays open on dull days, too. On top of all that, it has a delightful
> fragrance similar to lilacs.
> I don't think this succulent-leaved bulb would do well in the open garden
> anywhere but California; however, it is so small (the flowering stems reach
> only about 3 in/7.5 cm) that you can pack a pot  full of it. It increases
> pretty fast, too. Barring disaster I should have some available next summer.
