 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Striped Squill (Puschkinia, Squill)
  • Latin Name: Puschkinia scilloides
  • Family Name: Asparagaceae (also listed as Hyacinthaceae)

Like all members of the Hyacinth family this plant (including the bulb) should be avoided, as it contains cardiac glycosides.  This plant is closely related to the Scilla, which is also sometimes referred to as a Squill.   The flower colour is generally white with a blue stripe, although there is a variety with an all-white flower.
