We have greatly enjoyed this relatively unknown little bulb for several years in one of our raised beds. Flowering in the fall with short spikes of blush pink blooms, it makes a charming addition to rock gardens or the front of well-drained borders. Drainage is important because the plant lies dormant during summer and emerges in August. Tolerant of heat humidity and even a fair amount of moisture, Chinese Squill is definitely a new and different perennial for the garden.
