A very rare species, unlike its closely relative S. cilicica, this gem appears and flowers just days after the snow melts where it grows in shaded rocky habitats, and at the base of deciduous trees. The spectacular flowers make congested pyramids of ivory white stars, each petal delicately pencilled along its centre in blue. In the wild it is protected and distributed in Lebanon, W. Syria and in one location on the Israeli side of Mt. Hermon. Seed scarce and rarely available.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time, covering them very thinly with compost or grit, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed pot in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
