Ref Scilla Peruviana
Mon, 14 Feb 2005 08:23:48 PST
About three years ago I bought a pot of Scilla Peruviana at the local grocery 
store, in full bloom. When it was spent, I treated it like forced 
daffodils--let it dry, foliage fall and decompose, then knocked it out of the pot and 
planted the bulb out. I put it in a shady protected spot near the house.

Every year since it has thrown up foliage in the late fall, but never 
bloomed. I really expected it to be too tender for my Z5a-6a zone.

Any advice on getting it to bloom? It should probably be getting more sun, 
shouldn't it?
