Answer: Striped Squill, or Scilla, prefer sun during bloom, but shady conditions otherwise. The plants will go dormant in the summertime, after blooming during the spring months. The leaves are strap-shaped and the flower clusters are bell-shaped with star-like blossoms. After the leaves yellow and wither naturally, repot the bulbs in fresh soil. Don't water until new growth appears. All parts of these plants are poisonous, so be cautious when handling them.
