Does anybody recognize this? It's a bulb with white flowers and variegated leaf. It's just bloomed in my garden in London and I like it Thumbs up

Oddly enough, it looks like a Western North American wildflower called Great Camas - I believe yours is Camassia leichtlinii Sacajawea.

Now, not so odd - I found it listed for sale in the UK at Avon Bulbs.
