Siberian Squill

Scilia sibirica

Habitat:

Woodland near a river.

Notes:

While these flowers are pretty to see out in the forest, they are an invasive species in the U.S. They are garden escapees that have become common in the northeast U.S. but are really native to Russia. According to the website I posted here, they are not useful plants for local wildlife like deer and shrews.
