Spring Snowflake from my Stockton, California garden

Leucojum vernum (spring snowflake) has no more than two flowers per stalk (usually one) and is about 6-8" tall. Leucojum aestivum (summer snowflake) has 3-6 flowers per stem and is 12-18" tall. Summer snowflakes bloom only about a month after spring snowflakes.

This photo shows three flowers on a single stem. It clearly shows L. aestivum, and should be moved.
