Naturalizes for a Pleasing Ground Cover
White to silvery-blue flowers, each petal slashed with a deeper blue stripe, form cone-shaped panicles. Naturalizes readily by both self-seeding and bulb offsets for a an ever-widening carpet of color. Puschkinia libanotica, a versatile perennial, does well in most garden situations even under black walnut trees. Deer resistant too!

Puschkinia General Information

Puschkinia are best naturalized in drifts. Lovely in rock gardens, along walkways, in open woodland areas, meadows, and in front of shrubs or under deciduous trees. Attractive filler with other spring-flowering bulbs.

Puschkinia Plant Care

Foliage will go dormant by late spring. Foliage should not be removed or mowed until it is spent to promote bulb strength. Interested in forcing bulbs? Visit our Useful Links page.
