What Is It?




For the last 10 years these flowers have appeared in my garden in early spring, often before the purple blooms of the crocus. Any idea what they are?



My grandma and I have decided they are not snowdrops as these bulbs have multiple flowers on each stem rather than one. They also have lines of blue through them, which makes them, in my mind, absolutely beautiful.

They are gorgeous! I've never seen flowers like that! Maybe you should email one of the pics into Breakfast Television with attn:Frankie Flowers and perhaps he could help you.

no idea, but they are pretty. Can you find a flower identifier on google?

I'm not sure either! They are gorgeous though! Maybe a local greenhouse staff member may know?

Pretty! I love the blue stripes. Can't help you though - I'm not familiar as they sure as hell wouldn't grow HERE.

Erm...No idea! I was feeling all good about my flower identification skills today too as I identified another blogger's flower question. These are a mystery.

Thanks to MM who informs me these flowers are a variety of scilla.

They could be Star Gazers only they are pink and white; same sort of what yours look like. Just wondering do these have a nice smell to them? I had these in my garden and they come up every year and they multiple. I wonder if yours are Star Gazers but over the years have lost their coloury (lack of bees) or, just getting old.

Just something to think about.
