Delightful little early-spring flowers, appearing a week or so after the first crocus in our garden. Ours must have come from a bag of mixed bulbs, and are somewhat randomly scattered about - good for a surprise every now and then. They disappear without a trace by sometime later in spring.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
One or more images of this plant are included in my stock photo catalog

|Lori Skulski||May 16, 2015||Hi, Rob,
The upper photo of the blue flowers is actually Chionodoxa luciliae. The photo on the right is correct (Puschkinia scilloides). :-)
You're right of course. At some point I started confusing the two (the Chionodoxa has its own page here). Errant photo removed. Thanks for your helpful comments and corrections!
