Thread: Identify this flower?

  1. #1

    Identify this flower?

    A lady on another forum has asked if anyone can identify this flower. Any ideas please?
    The following is how she described it.

    They are growing profusely in a lot of gardens here (Isle of Wight). Their spread is like snowdrops/garlic/bluebells with same shape leaves. No smell to leaves or flowers, the colour (if the pic is difficult to see) a very delicate blueish white with lilac tips to the petals.

    Maybe a type of Periwinkle?

    Isn't it called Star of Bethlehem? Clump forming perennial bulb. Pretty little plant. Only flowers for 2 or 3 weeks in spring and the flower closes up tight at sunset.

    I googled it and it too looks very similar to the ladies photo.
    Thanks for your input.
