Muscari botryoides or hybrid ?
« on: April 23, 2016, 03:02:54 PM »
Hello,
Last year I bought from a known flower bulb shipping among other Muscari botryoides.
Now that they bloom, I doubt the identity.
They are also much larger than what can be seen in the gardens usually.
Is anyone familiar with it?

Thank you!
Bernd

Could it be Muscari azureum.
