The first year for Puschkinia lebanotica in semi shade under a cherry on a bank where it will hopefully naturalise.  It looks spectacular in the morning with the light through the flowers showing off the stripes and even the blue side view of a flower on the stem.

Correct name - Puschkinia scilloides.

Yes, it is Turkish, around lake Van. That one is so named Rix form, used for description of species.
Yours bifolias and pallasiana forms - incredibly beautiful.
