Leopard Lily (Scilla violacea)

Subscription Save

A beautiful little bulb from the Eastern Cape region of South Africa.

It has broadly lanceolate mottled green leaves that resemble the pattern of a green Leopard (if you have ever seen one). In spring they produce beautiful little green flowers with white edges in dense clusters. In the wild they grow in the shade of dense evergreen forest.

Caring for your Leopard Lily (Scilla violacea)


They like bright light and will do best with 3-4 hours of direct sunlight a day making them great for an east facing windowsill. They will keep their foliage year round but during the rest period try and keep them on the cooler side, between 10-15 degrees celsius is good. Avoid exposing them to frost.

Managing Growth

Won't get much taller than 15cm but as it gets older and more mature the cluster of bulbs will get larger and larger! Propagation of these dudes is easy through division of the bulbs.


During the growing season, water these beauties as you would most houseplants, when the top couple of centimetres of soil have dried out. During their rest period water therm only enough to prevent the potting media from completely drying out

For more detailed care information, please refer to the our Plant Care Guides.

Our special eco packaging

No Plant Stress

Our plant packaging is designed by people know how to keep plants fresh and healthy in transit. Your plants will enjoy a comfortable trip directly from our greenhouse to your door in just a few of days. Your plant will not have to deal with the stress of being bare rooted for transport (how most plants are sent) and you won’t have to deal with the mess and fuss of potting up your new plant when you receive it.

Stability Support

The plastic pot will be wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in place, it will then be tied into a specially designed cardboard insert which will keep it stable and upright throughout its journey. The insert will be glued in place on top of your cardboard wrapped ceramic pot to hold it down and your plant up!

No Re-Potting

Your plant will come in its plastic pot which we make sure fits perfectly in whichever ceramic pot you choose. Our packaging has been designed to allow us to send your beautiful ceramic pot along with your plant, fully potted, yep in soil, together in the same box.

Fully Recyclable

In fact you should feel awesome because ordering from us, online, will generate way less emissions than if you were to drive to the nursery to buy a plant. The only plastic you get will be the plastic pot that your plant comes in and these can be re-used or recycled.
