Photographed in the Alpine Garden during the early morning.
Despite the specific epithet peruviana, this plant is actually native to the western Mediterranean. The common names are frustratingly wrong: Cuban lily. Peruvian lily. Caribbean lily. Star of Peru. It does grow “wild” in those places, but that’s because it has been introduced and naturalized (there and elsewhere!). For the interesting history of this plant, I recommend visiting Scilla peruviana on the Hortus Camdenensis site.
