> >Mystery bulb time. I have just knocked out a choked pot of bulbs, thinking >it was the same as the Scilla peruviana which I am splitting up. Hardy - it Brian, What I have as Scilla peruviana var harrisiana does exactly this. The flowers are a "murky" blend of pink and blue, muted in colour but I still quite like them. Surprised the daylights out of me when I repotted it and found the bulbils you describe along the roots. Not putting it in the ground for that reason! LOL I have seen this variety discussed as to whether it is or is not Scilla hughii (as Diana mentioned) and I was never able to work out if/what the actual differences are. It looks to all intents like a colour form of peruviana, except that the bulbils form on the roots, something that has never happened for me on any of the others. I keep mine under the name harrisiana as that is what I received it as, but it sort of sounds like hughii may be very similar if not the same thing. That any help? Cheers.
