Description

A small yet tough and hardy species, the silver squill hails from the dry savannas of South Africa. This perennial is known for being a colourful and eye-catching houseplant. It has silvery leaves with green leopard spots, as well as unique teardrop-shaped bulbs that form above the ground. The silver squill also has the ability to store moisture in its purple, bulb-like stems during times of drought.

One of the most widely cultivated bulbs, silver squills are closely related to Hyacinths and are most often sold as a houseplant. However, they can be grown as a ground cover or even in succulent landscapes.

Though it looks like a succulent and possesses the same drought tolerance, the silver quill isn't technically this type of plant. The silver squill is a geophytic species of a bulbous perennial plant. You can expect its structurally unique leaves to grow in a lance shape and contain both silver spots and purple on the underside. Its flowers will grow during spring, displaying pink stems and small green flowers.
