    Comments about High Country Gardens Scilla siberica:

    I love scilla mingled with bloodroot. They bloom at the same time and are lovely together.
    Although I tried to move mine when we moved a year ago, I lost all the bloodroot and most of the scilla. It's unfortunate that HCG doesn't carry bloodroot and I have to order from two sources to replant this combo.
    HCG, please consider carrying both plants in the future!

      Q & A

      Suggested Companion Plants:

      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).
