Drama maritima, commonly called Maritime squill or Sea squill is found in the Asparagaceae family

Drimia maritima, commonly known as Sea Squill is found in the Asparagaceae family and the subfamily Scilloideae.  Sea Squill grows from a very large bulb. It is native to southwestern Eurasia, and north African coastal regions, mainly along the Mediterranean Sea.  This large bulb sends ups 8 to 10 leaves in the spring, and by fall these large, leathery, linear leaves die back.  At that point, the bulb then produces a tall spike-like racemose inflorescence (blooming first from the bottom upwards).

The Tucker greenhouse Sea Squill is located in the hallway to the right of the entrance doors right before entering the north greenhouse.
