Super small flower...one flower per stalk.
Triteleia laxa Koningin Fabiola.
Even grows well here for us.

The blooms do resemble those of Ithuriel's Spear (Triteleia laxa)



Here's our database entry for the cultivar that Silversurfer suggested: Ithuriel's Spear (Triteleia laxa 'Koningin Fabiola')

Interesting! That's the first time I've ever heard that common name. We just called them Brodiaea. Hilarious!
