When Do Scilla Bloom in Connecticut?
As you may have already guessed, there are two main factors that determine when Scilla will bloom: where your Scilla are planted & weather (time).
Bloom Time Depends on Where Your Scilla Are Planted!!!
When your Scilla will bloom will depend on exactly where it is planted in your yard or garden
In general, expect the following:
- If a scilla is planted in an area of your yard that receives full sun it will bloom around the same time every year or up to two weeks early due to warm weather and extra sunlight.
- If a scilla is planted in an area of your yard that received partial sun it will bloom around the same time every year.
- If a scilla is planted in an area of your yard that receives shade and is not protected from wind or rain it will bloom anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks later than its average time.
