What is this plant

United Kingdom Gb

We moved to a new house and this plant (from bulbs) is growing profusely but we don't know what it is. Can anyone help and let me know?




Yes, it's a Camassia. Lovely, aren't they!

There are three species, leichtlinii, cuisickii and esculenta, plus a few forms with either darker or lighter flowers. There is a white one form too. The one you have is most likeky C. leichtlinii.
C. esculenta has an edible bulb.
