Muscari- Grape Hyacinth

Attractive small bulbous plants, quite easy to grow.


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


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


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.
