First L. squamigera buds are finally popping out of the gravel in SE Michigan.  I have two leaf forms- one is relatively wide leafed and the second (added to the bed last year to fill it out a bit) has narrower leaves.  The latter has not bloomed yet but the bulbs looked like squamigera and were advertised as squamigera.  Since I mixed the bulbs, I may not be able to tell which blooms go with which bulb but will tag them next year.
