I still only have the seed number now :( Does anyone have further information about JJA #689.851??? please!

This is what it says in Jim's catalogue
689.851 : Muscari leucostomum (Subgen. Botryanthus) Tadjikistan, no further data. An eastern species, allied to M. neglectum, barely known in cultivation. Distinct blue-black flowers.

The "blue-black flowers" doesn't sound like yours.

Diane, thank you so much for the description on JJA list :) :) :) #689.851 isn't listed on any JJA lists I have.
My muscari labeled as #689.851 sounds different to the description in any way ???

Sorry to bother you again Diane but what was JJA 689.850 if possible. This seems to be I think what Yt originally ordered. Maybe he got the right seeds with a typo on the numbering?

Ron, here you are. JJA #689.850: MUSCARI LEUCOSTOMUM (Subgen. Botryanthus)* Turkmenistan, Kopet Dag, near Duschak. Ex a J. Ruksans coll. (an eastern species, allied to M. neglectum, barely known in cultivation. Distinct blue-black flowers.) My misterious muscari is not #689.850 at least by the description, I suppose.

Thank you, Davey :) You've finally identifyed that muscari :D

Franz, your white one is lovely 8) Are your H. dalmatica fertile? My 'Grandiflora' looks sterile :(

I do not know whether the white H. dalmatica is fertile.

Rafa,
I think first is Hyacinthella nervosa, second is Bellevalia nivalis.

Michael,

Looks right compared to what I have under that name.  The buds are an unusual teal colour, almost like some of the "viridiflora" flower colours.  I love it for that, and then it opens so lovely and dark.  Good multiplier for me too, I must say.
Cheers.
