Scilla Violacea - Ledebouria Socialis......the silver squill or wood hyacinth

This is a geophytic species of a bulbous perennial plant native to the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. It was first described by John Gilbert Baker as Scilla socialis in 1870.

Use a soil-based potting mixture and plant Ledebouria socialis bulbs in pans or half-pots. Pot up the bulbs in the spring, but no more than three bulbs in a single 10 to 15cm (4 to 6 inch) pot. Space the bulbs evenly over the surface and bury only the bottom half or each bulb in the potting mixture.
During the first four or six weeks do not feed the plants and water sparingly, allowing the top half or the potting mixture to dry out between waterings. When the new roots should be well established, treat the plants in the normal way. Break up overcrowded clumps every two or there years.
