Scilla peruviana

Scilla peruviana (Scilla peruviana (Cuban Lily))

This is the white version, so it really pops with the black background.

I had that. Funny how the photo doesn't give a hint. I wish I still had that clump. Snails got it long before Possums in my yard ate all the snails and slugs.

If I see that again,I will add it. Very attractive little plant.

This is not that small of a plant, and the leaves can get very large. I do have it in the standard blue, a lighter blue and this white. They flower at different times.
It was tough, waiting for the flower head to reach its peak so I could take photos.

My mistake.. I was thinking Scilla violacea. Googling I see its not even a Scilla anymore. Its Lebouraria violacea.
Scilla peruviana IS a much larger plant. Agapanthus like.
