Video: Little and Big

By Published On: August 8th, 20200.5 min readCategories: Photos

On a west-facing hillside I have a whole bunch of “little-big” plant pairings. This particular set is the world’s smallest flowering bulb, a garlic chive, and the world’s tallest, the giant white squill.

The chives max out around 12-15 inches, but the squill will reach 6 feet or more. Here’s a little video of the two enjoying the August sun yesterday.

If you look closely at both plants, it’s interesting to see how similar the flowers are. The blooms are about the same size, but the squill produces a heck of a lot more of them.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
