Muscari latifolium - April 2009


By Robertr

Muscari latifolium - April 2009 (Muscari latifolium)

Muscari latifolium - a variation on the humble grape hyacinth, has a striking bright-blue tuft of flowers (or "grapes") on top of a darker, almost indigo body. Its leaves are broader and flatter, wrapping themselves, tulip-like, around the stem of each flower - an elegant improvement on the usual strappy green spears that look messy when the plant is dying down.

Isn't it lovely? I have just found a few of these in the garden and I agree, its very elegant compared to its cousin.
