Found this growing in the lawn. I couldn't find anything like it in my wildflower guide so maybe it's an escaped ornamental. Anyone have an idea? I'm on Vancouver Island, if that helps. Thanks!

Chionodoxa - that is Glory of the Snow. I should have looked up the name before I jumped in there. Sighing!

In my experience, Scilla luciliae is extremely invasive. I've seen it seed into neighbouring gardens and into a local park.

It's likely a contributing factor that S. luciliae is poisonous; hence not bothered by voles and the like.

I realize that we gardeners often have very different tastes, but for me, I deeply regret that information on this bulb did not include a warning. It's taken several years to remove it from the gardens I planted it in.
