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.
