Muscari- Grape Hyacinth

Attractive small bulbous plants, quite easy to grow.

Situation:

In any garden a place may be found for the grape hyacinth. If they enjoy their situation, the plants will last for years.

Soil:

Reasonable garden soil, dry in early and mid summer, not too damp in winter.

Propagation:

From offset bulbs.

Muscari armeniacum: Height 15 cm; flowering season early to mid spring; the blue flower clusters do not extend above the foliage.

Muscari botryoides: Height 15-20 cm; blue or violet flowers in a tall cluster in early to mid spring. In the cultivar ‘Album’, illustrated, the flowers are white. This form is a little more tender and must be given some protection against frost. ‘Carneum’ is a little known strain with soft-pink flowers.
