My apologies to anyone who got this earlier today. I first posted this at
2:10 P.M. today, and it has yet to appear in my inbox.

previous garden and it bore racemes of florets that remained closed-- an
oddity of curiosity value only."

Jerry, that's exactly what caught my attention. It seems as if 'Saffier' is
to Muscari as 'Komachi' is to Platycodon. 

Your tastes in Muscari are evidently a bit more refined than mine: I find
even Muscari comosum interesting.

Montgomery County, Maryland, USA, USDA zone 7, inside temporarily until the
rain lets up a bit and then I'll be back outside planting. The recent
freezes took the Hosta, but the Arum italicum are filling the void.
