(Photo) Wild hyacinth

In Illinois wild hyacinth isn't a particularly common wildflower but I found one--just one--growing last month in the restored tallgrass prairie at Morton Grove, Illinois' Miami Woods.

The light-blue-bordering-on-white blossoms have six petals--actually they are tepals--with six distinctive long yellow stamens. Wild hyacinth is a member of the lily family.
