Ledebouria socialis, otherwise known as the purple or silver squill. Gorgeous tiny white flowers emerge from the bulbs all spring and early summer. This variegated succulent grows from a bulb. It is part of the Hyacinthaceae family and native to South Africa. Its tiny flowers appear in the springtime and last through mid summer, at least in San Diego. They appear to be white but are a light purple when examined up close. They are supposed to be grown in full sun but our Ledebouria socialis that are in the shade are thriving just as much as those in the sun.
This succulent needs a bit more water than the average fat plant, but not much. It is hardy to 25 degrees and adapts easily as a houseplant. These gorgeous succulents are available for sale in our succulent store. Get yours while supplies last!
