Regarding the comments on variation and confusion in species of Muscari, I 
recall reading about two years ago that a trial of "little blue bulbs" 
(Muscari, Scilla, and presumably Hyacinthella and Bellevalia?) was under 
way at Kew. I don't know whether any taxonomic activity was intended to 
come out of this, though.

Does anyone who lives closer to Kew know the outcome of that?

Northwest Oregon, where Scilla lilio-hyacinthus (or S. pratensis--I can't 
sort them out) is just coming into flower in the garden.
