Pushkinia (Puschkinia) bloomed in the Mikhailovsky Garden. A modest bulbous plant with two linear leaves and a pale blue sultan of bell-shaped flowers. But it is not possible to pass by the plantings of Pushkin indifferently. You are enveloped in the pleasant aroma of its small flowers, and dense inflorescences are clearly visible among the greening lawn.

The plant got its name in honor of the Russian naturalist A.A. Musin-Pushkin, who first collected these plants on Mount Ararat in 1802. Since the 19th century, Pushkin has been actively used in the spring decoration of gardens, planting small curtains among the trees.

New flowers bloom in the gardens of the Russian Museum every day. There are 9 days left until the opening of the gardens.
