Scilla siberica, S. mischtschenkoana: which flowers earlier?
so I try to be organized and prepare my order list.
For a part shady border (good, somewhat heavy soil) with some hours of full sun I want some more bulbs to naturalize. Should go with Hostas, so they should appear well before their foliage (tried and dumped botanical Narcissus, Tulips are just too late and messy...)
The Scilla siberica were fine so far, but I would like to go for white or white-ish flowers. So I came across S. mischt-something, and it was described to start flowering in February/March., pale-blue white
Do any of you grow both and can compare their flowering time? I would love to have really early flowers (If in doubt I would get S. siberica alba).
I tried Chionodoxa luciliae Alba, but in my bed they act very delicate and dwindle away without showy flowers.
Thanks for some comments,
