Scilla natalensis

The name of this succulent has a double reference: on the one hand it comes from the Greek and means "to tear, to hurt", to indicate its poisonous nature, on the other it refers to Scylla, the mythical monster that lived in the Strait of Messina, to highlight the lands of origin of this plant that grows in coastal areas, sometimes even directly on the sand. From this small bulb bloom, among fleshy green leaves arranged in a rosette, long stems with fresh spike-shaped flowers, typically blue or purple, that will color and brighten your flowerbeds or your interior. S. natalensis can reach 1 m in height and the flowering period is spring-summer.
