How about favorite blue flowered bulbs that I don't grow? (yet)  Naturally that would have to be Tecophilaea cyanocrocus.  Most Agapanthus are a pale washed out blue that I don't like, in general, not to mention how ubiquitous they are as store front plantings in my area.  There are some lovely deep violet-blue agapanthus that I adore, such as 'Stormy Seas', but to my mind  we are back to 'is it blue or purple?'  Camassia is a nice blue and the range of blues in Iris is incredible.  I especially like those that have a picotee edge.  I'll have to go through my records to find cultivar names.

Sierra foothills, Northern California, Sunset zone 7 but seems more like 8/9.  No blue geophytes in bloom right now but Crocus speciosus is still putting on a lovely display.  The rainy season started early this year and it is partly overcast.  No frost yet.  Dry, very hot summers, mild very wet winters.
