Wild bulbs blooming in Marylandcomments (0) May 2nd, 2013 in gallery
Blooming in April in Columbia, MD. Also seen in Druid Hills Park in Baltimore. I've seen this spread rapdily to densely fill a highway median over the past 4 years. Stems are 14-16 inches tall, outside of petals distinct green and white markings, inside pale greenish white. Looks similar to wild hyacinth, except for the noticeable center "tube" containing the stamens. Foliage consists of narrow straplike leaves that curl into a tube. Anybody have a name for this beautiful, abundant flower?
