Mark,
It looks like Muscari coeleste, in order to give the corect name you should take a photo of the open flower and leaves.
Tivon, in the lower Galilee, north Israel.

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

Yuri, I wonder if you have another photo of this species?

At first look, i would say the same as Alberto, H. leucophaea, but some thing is wrong in the structure.
These bracts and form of flower, and lack of the pedical [as you have well noticed] make me think that or it is some kind of a genetic defect or a completely different species. [ it looks similar to H. siirtensis, but this one grows in E. turkey...] ???

Absolutely yes, Maggi. It is unfortunate that so much of the commercial stock of many bulbs is infected. The problem is seed of them all is seldom offered.
