Bulbous perennial from the western Balkans, grown for its blue grape-hyacinth like flowers which bloom in late spring. Foliage comprises grass-like leaves which taper to a point. Up to 70 blue-violet flower buds are borne on each stem in a dense raceme, opening into star-shaped flowers. Scilla litardierei will grow to about 15-20cm tall and prefers some light shade in a moist but well drained soil. Fully hardy.
