Scilla, which is from the Mediterranean Basin, is well suited for our climate. The flowers and strappy foliage will disappear in the summer's heat. The leaves will reappear with winter rains. Going dormant in the summer is an adaptation many plants from summer-dry climates use to survive.
Although our Scilla are in beds that receive water every three weeks in the dry season, some of our gardeners have had success at home in beds that only receive winter rain water.
