"The distinctive blue colour with white-eye gives this species the name Glory-of-the-snow. Very fanciful."
Zygmunt Budge, Book of Spells[src]

Squill, also known as glory-of-the-snow (genus Scilla), are a number of brightly coloured flowering plants in the family Asparagaceae. The species goes dormant after flowering in the spring. Squill bulbs, which have Potion-making properties, are best harvested just after the plants flower.[1]

Squill are used by Muggles to manufacture cough medicines, while wizards use it as an ingredient for Felix Felicis — renowned Potioneer Zygmunt Budge remarked that it was perhaps the squill that gave Felix Felicis its smooth texture.[1]
