Lesley's muscari is not
Valeri Finnis because that one has has green stems.
Nor Pseudomuscari azureum because that one has striped somewhat keeled flowers.

I commented upon someones pink muscari and said that i would post my own when it came up.
I am only 8 months late ;D so now I do it
Both come from Ruksans. The first one he has found in the wild.
The second one is an old garden form that has become rare.

Today is misty and like the last few days above freezing.

Anne,
The first one is really M.macrocarpum. The 3d may be M.armeniacum 'Blue Spike'. No ideas about the second, sorry, as there are many of a similar look.

Thank you Oleg.

Tony,
Does the blackish mouth appears only in cultivars or have you seen it in the wild as well?

I have never seen it in flower in the wild so cannot answer that The only ones I have actually seen in flower are my own.It grows very low near the sea and I think it flowers very early. It is not one that grows in masses but occurs as isolated bulbs.

Maybe I'll send Jim Archibald a picture of my one and hope he recognizes it.

ID please?

Lesley,

Your plant (Reply #10, Page 1; reposted below) looks very like Leonid Bondarenko's M. pallens.

By Golly! So it does, even down to the red stems and the flower colour is just right. Thank you very much Ashley. Now I know where to look. I've found it is not particularly easy to keep, long term. It did really well for about 8 years but this last spring only one came up and it a small, non-flowering one, so I hope it isn't going to die on me completely. It has had only half a dozen seeds in all that time and they fell before I caught them but haven't germinated so far as I can tell.

Lesley I didn't recognise yours at first because it's somewhat different to mine grown under glass (no pic to hand unfortunately).  It sets viable seed if tickled (fiddly because of the constricted mouth :P).  However my few bulbs are bulking up now so some can be tried outside next season.  A nice thing.

This is not Muscari, this is rather Hyacinthella from northern Greece. Could anyone identify?

Last month I posted a pic of a little Hyacinthella in the garden ... I named it wrong :-[  Now that it has grown up a bit I can see it is Hyacinthella millingrenii, pictured below on the right.  In the same shot is the plant I grow as Hyacinthella atchleyi (=Hyacinthella leucophaea - Y.P.).  The latter does OK outside too and I like it better for its open mouthed, subtlely blue flowers.
