Depending on what book you read this may be called either a Scilla or a Ledebouria as its name has been changed several times. But whatever name you use it is a wonderful little plant for a small container. In our climate it is easy to grow outdoors and can bloom profusely when grown well as this specimen was. The floweres are like small lily-of-the-valley flowers and are produced on small spikes. It is often considered a succulent and so is a good houseplant.
It likes regular water when actively growing and may go deciduous to its bulbous bases if kept cold or dry during its winter resting period. This particular form has spectacular horizontally mottled silver and burgundy leaves and is very attractive even without flowers. It is slightly dwarfer than the species, usually staying under three inches tall.
