An unusual "grape hyacinth" from the cold wastes of Russia with short stems holding massed flowerheads of an unusual and most attractive, pale milky blue which are looser and not as tightly-packed as in many species, resembling tiny hyacinths to which they are of course related.
Sowing advice: Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
