This is a white-flowering scilla (S. mischtschenkoana), clump expanding nicely over just a few years.
Finally one of the stranger early-blooming perennials is Scopolia carniolica.
It\'s a big coarse plant which shoots out of the ground with multiple shoots with these curious brownish blooms with yellow interiors blooming simultaneous w/ leaf-out. Within a few days, the blooms will be dangling down around the perimeter of the plant. More interesting than beautiful, I guess.
Spring in the central Midwest is always a bumpy ride - it was 70 yesterday, 27 degrees right now (1pm in afternoon) - it\'s a good thing I took pictures yesterday!
