night-scented muscari?

Jane,  no tag.  I remember buying some scented commercial muscari  
about ten years ago.  I'm sure the packet showed yellow flowers, and  
it had a cultivar name.

There are two flower stems and the flowers are small, thick and green  
when they first begin. Then a central pinhole opens as the flower  
begins to expand.  There are now several big flowers ( 1 cm long )  
that have a slight yellow flush, and the bottom edge is brown and a  
bit spiky.

The leaves are very long ( 18 cm ), U-shaped, shiny on the reverse,  
but not shiny on the top surface.  They are red-flushed near the ground.
