My friend, Jon B, has grown this Leopoldia which he got as L. comosum, but doesn't think it is  :o
Would anyone know what it actually is?
cheers

We got this little grape hyacinth as Muscari mcbeathianum which it isn't!
I think it might be a form of Muscari muscarimi - pics taken a few days apart

This pale blue muscari was a seedling which came up in another pot. It's possibly a seedling of Muscari 'Valerie Finnis'. Last year a pinkish coloured seedling flowered - probably from 'Gul' (sometimes called 'Gul Delight').

Muscari sivrihisardaghlarensis.
I got seeds a few years ago but was very disappointed when the first flowers appeared 2 years ago to be just Muscari neglectum  :(
Imagine my surprise when these bloomed and appear to be correct! Now I just need to separate them from the impostors!

They look impressive Fermi. I am glad I did not have to type that long name.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

Hi Hilary,
I believe Sivrihisar is a city or area in Anatolia, Turkey
