Could someone identify this plant which has popped up in a small bed please? It's about 30cm tall at the moment, thanks Janet

Sorry! Can someone tell me how to upoad? I've seen embedded pics in posts but mine has obviously not worked. Do I have to do it from a photo sharing website?  Have looked at the 'Help' section of the Forum. thanks

Maybe wild garlic? Do the leaves smell garlicky?

Don't think that it is wild garlic (Ramsons) as they have the flowers at the top of the stem not opening in a spike as this one seems to do.  I know I know it but I just can't recall it yet.

Kate1123 - sorry forgot to thankyou for your advice but I still couldn't upload with a jpeg,

Any ideas on this one - is it worth preserving? thanks, Janet

It definitely looks like a type of Camassia.

Thanks smudge- I am glad you agree with me

Pam and Smudge thank you both! I've never heard of this before and having just googled it think it's  alovely addition to the garden!

Try looking at the Ornithogalum family - there are quite a few different ones but are very similar.

19/05/2012 at 16:22

I've never seen one before but I'd like it in my garden   I looked up Camassia and Ornithogalum in the search area to see what they looked like and it couldn't find anything

If you put the name into google followed by the word 'image' you will get lots of pictures of them ie  ornitholgalum images
