Like Mystic, I had a great time watching this little muscari bloom and bloom. It lasted for the longest time. It is a double-flowering muscari. First, the flower starts out blue but becomes green as it fades. Mine are growing in part shade/part sun and seem to love it there. The soil conditions are quite sandy and they like well-drained soils.

As you can tell from the pictures I have enjoyed this plant.It is constantly changing. It starts out with the globe of the flower just on the ground and continues to rise. Then turns a darker purple and gets a fuller bloom,then turns to a purple green mix and finally to solid green. Stays is bloom several weeks. I will try to get pictures of all the stages.
