Plant ID

I came across these two plants this morning - both are familiar to me, but I don't know their names.  The white flower (2 pictures) looks like some type of lily, tall stem with thin leaves.  The blue flowered plant is low lying and the leaves are equally attractive as the small blue flower.  Can you name them please?


  • The white flowered plant looks like a white agapanthus and the blue plant as long as it belongs to the spotted leaves looks like brunneria, sorry about the spelling.

    The white one  possibly some kind of garlic ?

    The blue one is definitely Brunnera, probably "Jack Frost".

  • I will check out brunneria I have never heard that name before.  The white flower isn't agapanthus, we have that in our garden.  These pictures stems are much narrower than aga and the leaves are narrower too.

    The top photo might be Allium Neapolitanum, the ornamental onion. Second photo looks like a Brunnera.

    Not sure about the white one.  Maybe Ornithogalum umbellatum? If it is, it's flowering early (or maybe not, assuming your username is where you live).

  • Taking a closer look at the google images I agree the little blue flowered plant is a Brunnera but which one I am not 100% sure - it may be Jack Frost.  The white flowered plant is an Allium and Neapolitanum looks to be the one.  Thanks everyone for identifying them for me so quickly.  I knew that I could rely on you to know.
