Despite its name, this plant is not native to Siberia. It got its name as a result of an error. Peter Simon Pallas, the famous German scientist and traveller who studied the flora and fauna of Russia in the 18th century, collected seeds of the Siberian squill and sent them to his colleagues. They sprouted seeds, described the species and erroneously indicated that the squill originated from Siberia. Although in fact the plant does not grow in Siberia, Pallas collected its seeds under Tsaritsyn (now Volgograd).
