Thanks Arda. 
In fact this is the one I showed before, on the left ;)   
However, because it began flowering in December during extremely cold weather I suspect that its development was abnormal.

Sorry, not easy to identify. Several could match, much more must be known than seen on picture. And... I'm not so keen in Muscari. Sorry.

A very pretty muscari Tatsuo. If it matures as a deeper pink, will you show another picture please?

The earliest flowering seedling from 'Rosy Sunrise' posted on 9th Feb. is fading its colour :( but the second flowering plant looks better than the first one, more flowers on a spike and slightly deeper pink :)

Very good. The fading of pink is usual for this strain. As I wrote before - color is brighter in cooler weather and in more acid soils.

Arda, Thanks :) I love these pink grapes.

Janis, thank you for your advices. The soil in this muscari pot is acidic ;) but temperatures rise warmer than usual here...

Ashley, it is one of the plants of Jim A. I bought last year, and I'm not certain how it will behave in a cold spell. It is in the protection of a greenhouse at the moment.

@ Arthur.
The overall height is about 20cm. I'll see if I can make a picture of the plant.

Thanks Luc.  Unfortunately in trying to exercise some self-control when ordering from Jenny Archibald's latest seed list this is one I left out :'(
May I join the queue in case you have a few seeds to spare in due course?

Luc,

That Bellevalia eigii is a cracker.  I love the shape of the buds, just about bursting to open.  So distinctive (or to my eye at least).  Very, very nice.

Thanks for the great photos everyone.  I noticed today here the first shoots of Muscari just starting to push through.  Probably a few others that I haven't noticed in the garden itself, but these were in pots.  8)
Cheers.

Muscari leucostomum from JJA Seeds (#689.851 ex Tadjikistan). I got this #689.851 seeds instead of "#689.850 ex Turkmenistan" on September 2008 list. It would be great if someone who knows further information tells me about it.
