How, where and when do I plant Scilla 'Siberica' flowerbulbs?

From September to January is the ideal time to plant Scilla 'Siberica' flowerbulbs in the ground. Take into account the planting depth, which should be three times the height of the flowerbulb, and the planting distance, which should be three times the width of the flowerbulb.

The Eastern star hyacinth thrives as a wild plant and naturalizes beautifully. To ensure that they come back year after year, it is advisable to plant them in a sunny or slightly shaded spot where the soil is slightly moister, but they prefer well-drained soil. Make sure the soil is not too wet, as this can lead to bulb rot. If your soil is naturally heavy or clayey, you can add some organic matter, such as compost, to improve drainage.

Care of the Scilla 'Siberica'

Water regularly during the growing period, especially when the weather is dry. Keep the soil evenly moist, but avoid waterlogging. Scilla 'Siberica' generally does not require heavy fertilization. If you choose to fertilize, you can use organic nutrients in early spring when the flowers begin to grow.

We recommend Bio Kultura for organic potting soil, plant food and other soil improvers!

Scilla 'Siberica' is a natural naturalizer and can reproduce by producing new flowerbulbs. Allow the leaves to die back completely after flowering, as this will store the energy in the bulb for the next year. Avoid removing the leaves until they are completely withered. Scilla 'Siberica' generally requires little maintenance. Remove any wilted flowers to keep the plant looking tidy.

Propagation

If the plants grow too close together over time, you can dig up the bulbs and divide them to give them room to grow.

Origin of the Scilla 'Siberica'

The origin of Scilla 'Siberica' lies in the mountains of Central Asia, particularly in regions such as Siberia and Kazakhstan. Hence the name 'Siberica'. This plant species belongs to the genus Scilla, which is part of the asparagus family (Asparagaceae) and is also classified among the stinzen plants.
