Leucojum aestivum flower size comparison

I'm interested to see that Jim states in his blog (see link below) that L. aestivum doesn't "jump the garden fence" often.  There are huge drifts of it gone wild along the Oswego River north of the town of Fulton, old enough and well-enough known to be mentioned in floras I have read (unfortunately I'm traveling now and can't track down a reference).  They tend to grow in low-lying seasonally flooded byways behind the banks of the river.

Now that I've seen Jim's photos of variations in flower size, I intend to visit some of those colonies when they bloom and see if I can find anything interesting.

>I took some photos of three Leucojum aestivum this morning. They give an idea of the size range seen in this species. None of the material came with trustworthy names, so you can decide for yourself what's what. You can see them here:
