Do you cultivated it under glass? Because it is very early or is this normal for you Tatsuo?

Thanks Onion :) I'm growing small bulbs outside, on the bench by south-facing wall just under the eaves. I checked last season's record and blooming time of this plant was same as this seasn ;)

Beautiful plants 8)

I really admire how 'tight' your muscari are grown Tatsuo.  Here the combination of lower light intensity and mild temperatures makes that very difficult to achieve.

Davey, your last one looks like M. muscarimi (see e.g. here), but maybe post again when the flowers are more mature.  Does it have a scent?  
Great crop of seedlings around your azureum.  Do you sow back into the same pot?

Cheers for that Ashley,it was given to me as  M. muscarimi but i don't detect any scent,i will wait for it to mature.Yes i did it for the first time last year(sowed the seed in the same pot as the motherplant) and seems to have worked nicely.

Davey - I agree with Ashley on that one, Muscari muscarimi.  Here it is in flower 20 Jan 2011, from Archibald seed.  The wild blue colour on the tip of the spike reminds me of Lachenalia viridiflora.  The scent was not as strong as I recall, M. macrocarpon may be better but I'm not the nose to ask.

Thank you Ashley, my place is in one of the sunniest winter area in Japan and probably fits for growing some spring flowering small bulbs such as Muscari and its relatives ;D But the temperature rises much quicker than your country in spring and jumps up to deadly high in following summer. So I have to give up growing many high altitude and latitude alpines here :(

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.

Afraid that it is not leucostomum, flowers far too light blue.
