Drimia maritima


Sea squill is a bulb which sends up a tall stalk topped by an inflorescence of small white flowers, followed by a rosette of large dull green leaves, that last until the following summer. The bulb can get quite large, reaching over five pounds in weight.


This squill is native to coastal regions of the Mediterranean in sandy soil, but it is widely cultivated.
