Muscari neglectum

There are a number of species of Muscari, of which the common cultivated form, which often appears as an escape is M. armeniacum. However there is a further species, M. neglectum, which also escapes but is much less common. It is a subtly different shade of blue/purple, rather more blackish-grey than M. armeniacum. It is much over-recorded but it looks as though this specimen is indeed it. It's worth going into the database and looking at photos of M. armeniacum to compare the difference in colour.
