Someone likes to sell these on ebay as "wild blue amaryllis" for several dollars a bulb.  Good thing you found them here first.

These are a deer and rodent resistant flower of the amaryllis family native to Syria and Afganistan.  Well worth a try in the garden or as a cut flower.

12-18" tall.  Plant 2-5 inches deep.
Zones 5-9.  Plant deeply and with mulch in zone 5.
