I find the squill a very invasive plant. I have to dig up the entire bed where they grow and throw out half the bulbs at least every third year. The only plant that is worse are lamb’s ears.
Where do you live and what kind of soil do you have (dry and alkaline, for example or ?). I find the garden environment can make a big difference in the invasiveness of a plant.
I have been growing these since I moved to Minnesota five years ago. Since they are growing in a border where my wife tends to pull them up, I started growing seedlings in pots as an experiment to see how old they would need to be to flower. So far, the June 2008 seedlings don’t look very close yet.
Those seedlings look so cute with their little brown jackets.
I have never noticed the seeds still on the foliage but I have noticed a trail of squill from the bed where they were originally planted to the woods where I rake the leaves and debris out of the bed. It is nice to think the rake is spreading such blue beauty.

As well as Scilla, growing from seed, I have Tulipa tarda growing from seed in my garden.
My scillas do this as well, although they don’t seem to multiply too much. Perhaps those darn rodents eat them.

Those are so cute! I have Freesia laxa here that spreads by both seed and bulb. They naturalize so well they’re almost weedy. Hey, that gives me an idea: I should plant them in the lawn! Thanks, Kathy, for the seed of the idea!

Awesome photo! I have these just starting to bloom. I will have to look closely for any sprouts. I planted them because I was told they would self seed but so far they haven’t spread very far. I was hoping to have them under some trees more. Thanks for the photo of what to look for.
Wow – it really pays to look carefully! Very pretty photo.
