I think Jim got his Scilla greilhuberi from me. I have grown it in 
the open garden in a very well drained raised bed for some years, 
where it flourishes. This winter it survived 12 degrees F/minus 11 C 
without snow cover. This is a pretty flower with prominent stamens 
and reflexed bright blue tepals, large for a Scilla (or whatever it 
may end up being called).

I did lost S. mauretanica to cold, as Jim did.
