Grape Hyacinth: A Field Guide

With a striking resemblance to budding hyacinths—in miniature—grape hyacinths are not hyacinths at all, but wildflowers that come from the rocky terrain of southern Europe and Asia.

Blooming from early to mid-spring, varieties of Muscari flower in a rainbow of blues and will spread and dominate in a flower bed. Better locations: planted in a dappled woodland, edging a path, or in a tight clump in a planter. Some of our favorite varieties of Muscari are tufty M. latifolium; calm pale blue M. armeniacum ‘Valerie Finnis’, and white-flowering M. ‘White Magic’.
