I have a bulb plant with lavendar/purple flower with the inside petals rimmed in white. The stems are tall and the leaves are sparsely placed, shamrock shaped and in sets of three. . Can you tell me the name of it?

I've researched all of my bulb resources and cannot come up with a name for your plant. It's a lot easier to identify a plant by observing it closely than through a written description. The shamrock shaped leaves are technically called trifoliate and the only bulb like plants with trifoliate leaves are members of the oxalis family. Perhaps your plant is oxalis? You might try a web search or a book on bulbs from your local library. Wish I could offer more assistance!
