Squill is great for tall vases and showpieces. They bring drama to any arrangement.
Care and Handling:
Inspect the florets and check for shattering, shedding or dropping of flowers. Lower flowers ought to be quite open, with a reasonable spread of the inflorescence continuing up the stem in an open state. Squill flowers should be a bright white. Stems should be rigid and an attractive chocolate brown. Check stems for cracks and breaks. Stems should be cut cleanly and crisply and placed immediately into water. The flowers should be hydrated in a low sugar holding solution and preferably processed in the cooler. Some of the varieties are quite tall and top heavy, and will require special attention with regard to buckets.
