Requesting to please ID these flowers captured in Chicago, USA in May 2013.


It is a Camassia sp. [Asparagaceae].


Thank you … for the lead…

It seems to be Camassia leichtlinii…Kindly validate.


I’m not sure about the species.


Only 2 sp.,  Camassia scilloides (Raf.) Cory and Camassia angusta (Engelm. & A.Gray) Blank. are listed in Illinois and looks the later one is matching!
