Plant identification

Hello

Can anyone identify the plant in the photos?

Initially I thught they were Muscari but they were later, taller and more delicate in structure.  I've no recollection of acquiring them and I think they were in the pot seeral years before they flowered

  • they look rather like agapanthus - mine toojk several years to flower - but they look like they have more flower buds down the stem and agapanthus only have one glorious head per stem as far as I know....

    I don't think they're agapanthus, I'll have a look in my bulb book. They look a bit familiar but they're nothing I grow.

  • liriope muscari?  that flowers in autumn....

  • nutcutletnutcutlet Posts: 27,417

    Liriope has much tighter flower heads and mine is nowhere near flowering, this one looks as though it's going over.

    Norman hasn't comeback on the time question and I can't ID anything in the background to get  a clue can you gg?

    I was thinking they look like weedy spanish bluebells.

  • Sorry not to have stayed on line, thanks for the posts.  Fidgetbones, I don't think they are Spanish bluebells if they are the ones supposed to be taking over from the natives.  These have a much more "all-round" flower than any bluebells I have seen.  Checking the photo, it was taken mid June, after all my normal Muscari had finished, and yes, nutcutlet, they were going over.  The area is S.W Scotland and Spring was pretty late with us.

    These might be a muscari Norman, but not the usual one.

    Check on responses later on, there are other plant ID people on the forum that aren't around at the moment. Someone is sure to recognise it

  • Thanks nutcutlet.  I note your comment about m.liriiope having tighter flowers and these are much more open than my muscari.  They are also hardy so that should rule out any agapanthus ideas.  I'll check back later.

    Yes, forget agapanthus and liriope.
