Brodiaea Queen Fabiola

If anyone grows this northern California wildflower could you tell me if it is fragrant. My packet of bulbs doesn't indicate it is but something I read on another website mentioned a pleasant aroma. Thank you.

I have never detected any fragrance from mine. I don't see that as a defect though- these are fantastic bulbs. I've had my Brodiaea/Triteleia laxa 'Queen Fabiola' bulbs for three years now and love them. They require zero care, are not fussy about dry conditions, and add a nice pop of blue to the summer garden. I think mine are even starting to multiply some. I like them so much that I want to find some other cultivars this year...
