1. History/Origin

Southern Cappadocia, Turkey.

Coeleste in Latin refers to divine, celestial, heavenly bodies.

Individual flowers are ‘sub erect’ appearing to hang down more, giving a more modest appearance than those of Pseudomuscari azureum.

As the flowers age they turn deep violet blue. No discernible scent.
