The Q&A Archives: Identifying A Flowering Spring Bulb

Question: trying to identify lovely little spring bulb flowers. They are periwinkle blue, 6 petals about 1 inch across. Leaves, long, slender, green about 4 inches long. Someone told me it was called scillia but I can't find that listed anywhere.

Answer: Scilla siberica and Puschkinia libanotica have blue flowers, but you might be describing Chionodoxa or Glory of the Snow with six petals.
