Leopoldia comosa, more commonly known as the tufted grape hyacinth or tassel hyacinth, is a perennial bulbous plant and is found in South East Europe on rocky ground or cultivated areas, such as cornfields and vineyards. The edible bulb is eaten in some Mediterranean countries, and in Crete it is considered a delicacy. The bulbs are boiled several times, pickled and then kept in olive oil.

I would have thought the bulb poisonous. How interesting that they eat it. It's a lovely flower too. I wonder if it's fragrant?

Love the mauve colour of this flower Carol, have you tried eating these bulbs yourself? If not I think you should pickle some and keep them in a jar and serve them for lunch when Simon Fletcher comes over to visit you in Crete!Wink

He's a cheeky one, Carol. What would you do with him ?! Wink Smile Grin
Like Phil, I think I would rather look at them, than eat them.
Exceptionally pretty and I love the colour against the sky.
Now I'm wondering how tall they are...
... and did you have to get muddy knees to take the shots Wink
