There are those who suspect Wildflower Center volunteers are the culpable

can torture us with your plant questions, but we will never reveal the Green
Guru's secret identity.
From:Orem, UT Region: Northwest Topic: Plant Identification Title: Identification of flower similar to bluebell in Washington Answered by: Nan Hampton
Is there somewhere I can submit a picture to see what kind of flower it is? It looks like a bluebell but more star shaped. Found on the side of the road in Oak Harbor, WA
To search for possibilities for your flower I went to the database Wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest and searched by color—blue. Below are the possibilities I found. You should try the search yourself to see if there might be ones that I missed that could be the flower that you saw.
