Ledebouria socialis (Silver Squill)
If you are looking for something a little different to add to your succulent collection, you’ve got to check this out! Ledebouria socialis is an evergreen bulbous perennial that grows 6-10 inches tall with tear drop shaped bulbs that, for the most part grow above ground. It has fleshy lance-shaped leaves that grow 4-6 inches long and are a grayish-purple color with green spots. The underside of the leaves are purple. It sends up delicate pinkish-white flowers that bloom in the spring and summer.
This charming little plant grows with minimal care and is a good choice for a dry, shady area of your landscape. It grows best in filtered sun light or shade, and does not tolerate full sun. It can also be grown as a house plant in a bright area of your house. When planted in a pot, the bulbs will quickly multiply and fill in its container. It is easy to propagate by separating the bulbs. CAUTION: All parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested, so please keep away from pets and small children.
