Description from White Flower Farm

Dense, fragrant spikes of cobalt-blue flowers. Superb when planted en masse and allowed to self-sow freely. Heirloom, 1877.

Muscari, commonly known as Grape Hyacinth, are high on the list of accommodating, simple-to-grow, durable bulbs. Inexpensive and fast to spread, they’re a perfect choice to create a carpet of soft blue beneath yellow or white Daffodils or early pink Tulips. Because Muscari are so often grown en masse and their flowers are small, it’s easy to miss how beautiful and intricate they are. Not even the cleverest jeweler in Faberge’s workshop could create such delicate clusters of luminous blue or violet beads.

Muscari thrive in full sun or deciduous shade, tolerate practically any soil, and seem to live forever. They are ideal as companions for taller bulbs or flowering shrubs, and look marvelous set out in loose sweeps all by themselves. Easy to force.

In the fall, we sometimes receive calls from customers who have noticed that their Grape Hyacinths are sending up leaves. This growth is normal and is actually convenient for the gardener, since it marks the place to scatter a bit of bulb fertilizer.
