Hopefully I've got the right species this time; for a long time I believed that my Scilla scilloides (now known as Barnardia japonica was autumnalis. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to see the difference.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following areas: left fence border, foundation border, front fence nursery area
