Wonderful, marvellous, amazing…

Muscari Mirum – 23 May 2019

… surprising and awesome.

Well this is how the Latin word ‘mirum’ is defined on the pages of Wiktionary

Muscari mirum is a pretty little plant and I suspect by its colouring is more closely related to its Leopoldia relatives than its name suggests.

Along with one of those relatives, Leopoldia neumannii, it is bringing to an end the flowering season for my little collection this year.

Leopoldia neumannii- 23 May 2019

I have loved both meeting new species and welcoming old friends. So while the bulbs might be heading for dormancy, I am not. The obsession continues!

For me it’s time to hit the books, do my research, learn more and order the seeds and bulbs of some of the many wonderful, marvellous, amazing, surprising and awesome plants that I have yet to meet.
