|Scilla scilloides var.
litoralis is a perennial herb that inhabits rocky places in
coastal areas. Leaves, 2-4, are in the shape of a linear, 5-20cm
long, 5-12cm wide; not only is the width wider, but also thicker
than the elemental species, Scilla scilloides. Leaves appear in
spring and disappear in the summer, and as late August-early
September set in, flower stalks emerge and arrange many light
red-purple flowers on them. The flowers bloom from the bottom
upward, and the leaves appear afresh. Bloom time: August-October.
