Genus of the Alliaceae Family
Leaves smell like onions when crushed
Full Spring height 5 - 7 inches
Well drained soil - clay or winter wet will kill it fairly quickly
Plant 3 inches deep 2 inches apart (I planted 15 of these)
This is an unnamed species, but is considered to be Ipheion uniflorum. Bright blue flowers, this is another plant in this complex that is controversial. Some feel Rolf Fiedler is really Tristagma peregrinans P. Ravenna but this plant has not been verified by anyone except the person who named it.
Note: You may find the leaves emerge in the fall - freezing solid and the flower emerges in the spring, normally isn't a cause for panic as this is it's natural growth habitat.
