It’s been a while since the last {floral friday} and when my mom asked me if I wanted to share some of her flower photography a couple days ago, of course I said yes!

So, today I’m sharing the Caribbean Jewel, or also known as Scilla peruviana (Peruvian Lily). I love those little blooms and the intense color they come in!

A few facts about Scilla Peruviana:

  • This flower is native to Spain and Portugal.
  • Scilla Peruviana should be planted in September through December for blooms in February, March and April.
  • The scientific name peruviana, “of Peru” results from confusion over the origin of the specimens from which the species was described by Carolus Linnaeus in 1753; he was given specimens imported from Spain aboard a ship named Peru, and was misled into thinking the specimens had come from that country. The rules of botanical naming do not allow a scientific name to be changed merely because it is potentially confusing. {source: Wikpedia}

I’m partying here! ❤
