Hi can anyone name this flower. It was flowering with bluebell in the UK at this time of year. I think they are Summer snowflake but not 100%. Any help would be great.

Thanks Justin

It is definitely not a snowflake...Leucojum.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...


It might be Allium family...maybe wild garlic.???
What were the leaves like?
Try picking a leaf and crushing it. Does it smell of onions.

Another suggestion is Anemone nemerosa...wind flowers.
A low growing plant with cut leaves.

https://www.google.com/search?...

Both these would be found at this time of year in a UK woodland with bluebells.

It is always helpful to see the whole plant/ open flowers/leaves plus something to give scale...a coin, lens cap/hand.etc...
Do please add more pics to this thread.
A single pic showing one tiny flower is not sufficient for an accurate id.

It reminds me of European Wood Anemone (Anemone nemorosa) than Wild Onion or Wild Garlic but leaves would definitely be a determining factor.

Just had a thought.
Were the bluebells in a garden...maybe Spanish bluebells OR the native bluebells growing wild.
i.e your pic is it in a garden or growing wild?

Allium was my first thought.

Still waiting for fresh pics.

Justin ...next time you take a pic do try to take the whole structure.

Allium looks like the right identification. Here are some more images now I've been back. Big thanks for naming them for me.

Many thanks for new excellent clear pics.
Very easy now to be confident that it is Allium paradoxum...it is a completely invasive thug.

Now you know exactly what is needed for any future id's
Learn and enjoy a wonderful hobby.

Its great I'm on a big learning curve. My love is photography and this last year I've been focusing on macro or all things small. Which has attracted me to plants and flowers. This forum is a massive help identifying and learning about the species that I document.

Big thanks for all the help on this one.

No wonder that I thought those photos were better than the work of a casual camera bug.
