"Siberian Squill (Scilla sibirica) produces bright blue flowers in early spring on 4 to 6 inch plants. They are easy to grow and prefer partial shade to full sun. Siberian squill are most effective when planted in masses under trees and shrubs, but are also suited for rock gardens and the edge of woodlands. Siberian squill multiplies rapidly. Spanish Bluebell (Endymion hispanicus or Scilla hispanica ) produces 12 to 15 nodding, bell-shaped flowers on 12 to 18 inch stems. Varieties are available in blue, pink, and white. Spanish bluebells do well in heavy shade."
