I tried to key this out and it might be a camas. However, the anthers have that blue color, and it is far smaller that any other wild hyacinth I could look up.
It was growing on tilled soil in a horticulture garden. The flowers are facing downwards and were being pollinated by bees. There are 1-3 flowers per stem, and the leaves are long and slender like any other monocot. It seems to grow from bulbs.

Does anyone known what this might be?

Welcome!

Were the flowers growing singly up the stem? Or did they all come out of one spot at the top of the stem?

Compare to Scilla sp.
Probably Scilla siberica.

That looks like it. Thanks for the help!

Too bad the plant seems to be an invasive one.
