I have a bowl planted with Muscari which are just coming into flower now. Amongst them are two what appear to be Tulip leaves, yet the buds coming appear to be large Muscari......I wonder how his has happened?



Hi Janey,
This is one of the wonders of gardens and gardening,

Ive an old apple tree that sits a bit higher up in the back of the Lawn and i have a bench under this apple tree,

Ive two dogs graves on this little piece of land and i bought a few hundred muscari bulbs to cover this high ground as a mark of respect for all the years these two dogs we're with me,

But over the otherside of the two acre garden today i found muscari growing,
How have these bulbs got there i'll never know but they have.

Like you im surprised.

The foliage of my Muscari latifolium Blue Angel is very tulip like. As it was growing I was confused too!

Thanks Dungy......yours must have come from seeds dropped by birds, then have grown into the small bulbs? A two acre garden sounds amazing.....lots to keep you busy there....:))

Hi Scottish.....I'm thinking these two must be that OH pointed out, theyre more like Hyacinth how come I think of that....:)))
