Leopoldia dionysica

This genus was split out of Muscari, and includes the species that have a 'tassel' of sterile flowers at the top of the flower spike, and larger fertile ones below. Usually the infertile flowers have a bright colour, blue or violet, and the sterile ones are darker and more muted.

Leopoldia dionysica has substantial spikes of flowers, bright violet at the top and much darker, but still purple, below. This was collected by Antoine Hoog on the Greek island of Karpathos.
