Scilla maderensis question

Last fall I ordered 3 bulbs from, a company I've
ordered from a few times, with mixed results.  I had been looking for Scilla
maderensis bulbs and they had them as a new item, for a pretty good price,
indicating that they were being grown commercially in Israel.  Assuming this
is true, perhaps Ricardo can track down who in Israel is doing the growing.


Of the three bulbs I received, one got established pretty quickly and
bloomed pretty impressively.  A second sent up a less impressive spike.  The
third hasn't made any roots and is just sitting there.  We'll see what
happens next year to these.

Hello Jane, my name is Ricardo, I am from Spain.


First of all, congratulations for the good job of making the web.


I would like to ask if you know anybody who has Scilla maderensis bulbs.
