Quick Facts:

Grape hyacinths: small is beautiful Grape hyacinths – the essence of early spring – appear around March/April depending on the variety. Although the deep blue ones are the most familiar, there are other kinds as well. They can also be white, lilac, purple, violet, pink, bicoloured, or various shades of blue. The flower stem of this attractive grape hyacinth bears tightly packed clusters of blue flowers followed by decorative seed pods. Planting is easy The best time to plant them is in October and November. Make planting holes and plant at least 50 bulbs at the same place for a good visual effect. If you bury them under about 4" of soil, success is assured. Once planted in a favourable spot – a sunny to semi-shaded location that stays fairly dry during the winter – they can pop back up year after year. If this naturalising is what you want, choose a variety such as Muscari latifolium. Most of the Muscari varieties are great for naturalizing! Food heaven Grape hyacinths are highly reliable early-flowering bulbs that have an average height of around 6 to 10". Especially during these first days of spring, when few other flowers are in bloom, these plucky little gems are eagerly visited by insects like bees and bumblebees. They provide so much nectar that they are sometimes called ‘nectar filling stations’. Scented grape hyacinths Varieties with extra fragrance include the sweetly scented Muscari armeniacum, Muscari botryoides ‘Album’ white and Muscari ‘Golden Fragrance’. Worth a closer look These little jewels are really worth taking a closer look at. This way, you can see all their little details. And/or pick a few to put in a little vase. Simply beautiful!

This prized 1886 Turkish native yields conical racemes of fertile (open) deep Oxford-blue florets topped with a jaunty hat of sterile (closed) periwinkle-blue florets above ample foliage clumps. Commonly referred to as Grape Hyacinths, deer- and rodent-resistant Muscari naturalize readily in well-draining soil and in full to partial sunlight. When it’s extremely happy where planted as it matures over time, it can naturalize by both bulb offsets (baby bulbs on the sides of the mother bulb you’ve planted) and self-sowing seed. You’ll need about nine bulbs per square foot. (Square footage is determined multiplying the planting site’s length times its width.) 

Bulb size: 6 cm/up. Full to partial sunlight. Height: 6” (and even taller). Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: April/May. Plant 5” deep and 3” to 4” apart. HZ: 4-8. They make good cut flowers too.
