A wonderful garden and pot plant, with beautiful big deep-blue flowers in spring, typically April/May to June. Plants have semi-evergreen lance-shaped leaves, which die down in cold winters, and grow to a height of 20-30cm. These are an excellent investment plant, as they spread naturally once established and create a wonderful display. They are good pot plants for outside.
Portuguese Squill grows best in full hot sun and rich, well-drained soil. They will tolerate part shade. They need some water in spring while growing and flowering and can be left dry in summer after flowering. Portuguese Squill plants are hardy and can be left in the ground in most UK gardens over winter.
