    Comments about High Country Gardens Scilla litardierei Bulbs:

    I planted these sweet bulbs in a woodland setting, as our southern sun plus heat can really burn plants that are recommended as part sun for areas with more gentle light. They appeared in a lovely grouping and bloomed enough fore me to stop and enjoy along the path, but they would not have stopped traffic. They are wonderfully subtle and timed to bloom after many of my narcissus have finished. I consider these a real find, and I only hope they make themselves at home. With bulbs, it is hard to know until the second or even third season if they will be perennial.

    Q & A

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
