Pseudomuscari inconstrictum (Reich.f) Garbari
Growing wild in Iraqish Kurdistan Iraq and Syria in to Turkey.
Comes from low altitudes.
Syn. (Sold as) Muscari inconstricutm. This species remains in debate, with plants found in Cyprus displaying much more rounded flower form than those identified in Palestine, Syria etc. To my eyes this is much more Muscari that Pseudo!
