What is this early blooming blue flowered bulb based perennial?

Asked March 17, 2016, 7:28 PM EDT

Hello, and thank you in advance for helping amateur botanists and other plant enthusiasts out. I have this pretty blue flowered perennial (it's bloomed at least three years straight ) and it always beats the crocuses and daffodils to bloom. It seems to be bulb based, I am curious as to what it is so I can get it to fractal some more bulbs instead of having just one concentrated plant. I live in Quakertown, Upper Bucks County, PA, 18951. I think we are zone 6 b.

Hello,

From the picture, it appears to be a hyacinth. It may be a wild hyacinth or it may be a remnant from a planting. Hyacinth grows from a bulb, usually as a single flower stalk. The bulbs do not divide, so you cannot increase them from one. It is a beautiful color.

Thank you for contacting Cooperative Extension.
