Nothoscordum inodorum; one man's weed

It's a fine line between scourge and interesting casual isn't it? I have
this in South-Western UK and enjoy it - don't know how it arrived but
definitely not invasive here. Whereas Muscari armeniacum I just cannot
control and will have to say farewell when I move similarly.

The moral seems to be that when Liliaceae decide to be weeds they are very
intractable. (There are several alliums that I know of gardeners cursing. I
have even heard a complaint about Leucojum aestivum being invasive !)

(See the lovely Nothoscordum at - it's the same one I think
despite newer name.)
