Little Blue Mystery

Now that the sun is shining and the Earth in my neck of the woods is warming up, I am able to begin Herbaloo’s Wildflower Series.  The hunt is on!

This week I will need a little help from my readers!  This beautiful thing has been deemed a “Little Blue Mystery”  for its second year.  I am unable to identify this small wildflower using the Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide, so I reach out to you!  Can anyone crack the case?

It grows in full sun faster than grass, covering large areas of my front yard.  As well as similar patches in the woods, with partial shade.  Good Luck!

  1. There were flowers very similar to these in my yard when I was growing up in Maine. I knew them as “scilla.” My guess as to why you can’t find them in a wildflower book is that they are not native, and they grow from a bulb. They might have been planted originally, and spread out on their own over time. Hope this is helpful!

  2. Looks to me like some type of violet, however the leaves are more like a lily. I have something out front in white that looks similar – if it is still in bloom I will try and get a picture for you.
