Description

Muscari neglectum is native to Europe, northern Africa, and southwestern Asia. The scapes stand 4 -8 inches high with narrow, linear leaves at the base. It blooms in March and April with very dark blue, almost black, fertile flowers with white lobes, as well as smaller, paler flowers that are sterile. It is long blooming and easy to grow, but it is invasive and is considered undesirable by some people.
