Muscari 2010

First Muscari of the season is open...M. latifolium. This one is long-lived in the garden but does not multiply for me like the other popular species.

I grow this species  in my woodland and they self sow even in the paths.

Some of the "wild" Muscari  (possibly botryoides) are blooming in a carpet of Sedum spurium. This Sedum grows wild here, originally planted by my grandma 80 years ago.

Sorry to resurrect an "Old" thread, but it's still 2010 and "down South" it's almost spring and the muscari are starting to flower.
The first is one I grew for many years as M. cyanea violacea but I've been informed that it's Muscari cyano-violaceum a synonym for Muscari armeniacum

The second is one I grew as M. pseudomuscari from NARGS Seedex 2007, but it's been identified as Muscari azureum or possibily a hybrid.
