This is a twining Brodiaea.  I first discovered it growing in brush in the countryside near Napa.  I tried growing it in a large pot in the greenhouse, and it would make foliage, but no flowers.  I planted the bulbs out in a raised bed of sandy loam in full sun last Fall, and they are blooming on four-foot twining stems.  My garden is in SW Washington state.  They don't seem bothered by the wet, cool weather.
