Caption: Siberian squill (Scilla sibirica alba) pollen by SEM. The genus Scilla (family Liliaceae) is a group of early spring perennials from Europe, Africa, and Asia with more than 100 species, of which several are grown as ornamentals. The bright blue or white flowers of Siberian squill (Scilla sibirica) are one of the first of the spring-flowering bulbs to bloom in early spring and provide pollen as food to early insects. Despite the name, it is not from Siberia, but from other areas of Russia and Eurasia. It is a very tough plant, however, growing in USDA zones 2 to 8. It has been cultivated since 1796. Alba is a pure white form. Scilla sibirica has either blue or white flowers. Enhanced SEM. Image width: 128 micrometers. Magnification: 781x if the image is printed 10 cm wide.
