I am absolutely in love with these tiny little flowers, Chionodoxa luciliae, also known as Glory of the Snow. They were on sale in the Fall so I bought a couple of packs to see how they turn out. The pack picture has them looking purple, so I was quite surprised when they bloomed a beautiful blue.
Glory of the Snow
They only grow 5 inches, and are supposed to naturalize each year.
April is a great time to start looking for early wildflowers. The Pasque Flower is the first one to come up every year, usually around Easter. I usually find it in sunny locations, on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River. Leave them where they are and don't try to dig them up to move to your garden. They don't transplant well.
