Pic was taken in June Flowerchild. it could be a scilla of some sort though.
Ah, I missed that Nutcutlet, thanks for letting me know. I'll have another look in the book then.
Could be Scilla litardierei, in that case. According to Anna Pavord it flowers in late April and since we've had such a cold Spring it could well be that it flowered later than it normally does or should do.
I think they're lovely and having seen these, I'm going to order some for my own garden, as well as the Prospero ( love the name). Thanks for showing them, Norman D!
Just googled S. litardierei and it looks a strong contender.
It does indeed.
NormanD Could you take a close up picture of the open flowers at the top?
Too busy to respond yesterday. Googling the Scilla, I feel it has a more dense inflorescence than my plant. Addict, I am coming round to your earlier idea of a camassia, although an American webpage described scilloides as having 3 ft flower spikes, which is more than twice the size of mine. Sorry you'll need to wait till next year for a more detailed pic.
