Thanks nutcutlet.   That is exactly what it is, brilliant to be able to identify it from my brief description.


 

Help! What is this plant please

It is about 3 feet tall with blueish green leaves and fluffy small white/pale lilac flowers.  The stems are very upright and stiff.  


I have taken a couple of pictures of it but seem unable to post them.

Thanks for looking nutcutlet


 Sorry no more photos but I will take another when I get some leaves to show.  It is about 12" tall.   I think the soil is quite acid and damp, did wonder whether it could be a wild flower.  Nothing else in the garden has been eaten but both the flowers and the leaves are irresistible to something.


This is only the second year of living in Scotland and last year I also tried to find out what this plant was.

Hi,


This plant has lilac flowers when it is still very cold in Scotland at the beginning of March.  The leaves have 5 fingers and are only just beginning to appear.  It has no perfume but something loves eating it.  Comes up every year and appears to be corms.  Nobody seems to know what it is - can anybody help please?  Sorry the pictures are not too good.
