Ask the Flower Expert: Can You Tell Me the Name of This Plant?
Dear Flower Expert: I bought this at a local grocery store around Valentine's Day. It didn't have a tag on it. Can you please take a look and let me know what this is? Thanks, Kris Flower Expert Reply: On first appearance it looks like it might be a type of Scilla hyacinthoides. The genus Scilla contains around 90 different specious. These bulbous perennials are often used as a naturalizing element under trees and shrubs. In recent years, the plant has been cultivated for cut flower production or as a blooming potted pant. Hope this helps! As with all plant identification, I welcome any input from our readers. Let us know if you think this plant is a Scilla or something different!
