David my Scillia peruviaa is evergreen in zone 7b unless we get bad freeze in teens.

Hope this helps.

Dear members,

 have been growing an unknown bulb for two years.  From my notes it appears to 
e evergreen but it’s not clear what its dormant period is.  In mid-February I 
oticed a flower scape developing – it looks for all the world like that of 
cilla (Oncostema) peruviaa.  Except that it’s evergreen.  The peduncle hasn’t 
xpanded yet, and it looks like it’ll be more than a month before the first 
lowers open.  Do any of you know of any key to Scillas I might refer to to key 
ut this plant?  I'm fairly certain it will belong to the Oncostema group.

hank you,
avid Ehrlich
