Set B6 - Wild Flowers Series 2 - card information

7. Vernal Squill (Scilla verna Huds.)

7. Vernal Squill

On dry grassy slopes and headlands by the sea, especially on the western coasts of Britain, this beautiful little plant may be found though it is not common. On favourable sites it will grow in great profusion, and in Spring the blue of its flowers appears, from a distance, as a mist over the ground. The flower stems are rarely more than five inches high, and in the more exposed situations are usually three to four inches.
