Family, Lily. Color, deep indigo blue. Leaves, long and narrow, from the base, fleshy. The perianth of this modest spring flower is like a round, small bell or globe with 6 little teeth on its edge. Flowers are crowded in long racemes at the end of a scape which rises from a coated bulb. April to June.

The specific name means, and the flower-bells suggest, a bunch of grapes. The generic name refers to its faint scent of musk. Originally cultivated, and now found in grass-plots and fence-corners, escaped and become wild. Massachusetts to Virginia and Ohio.
