MUSCARI (grape hyacinth)

MUSCARI (grape hyacinth)

MUSCARI (grape hyacinth)

These small bulbs produce masses of compact spikes of flowers about 6" tall. Most are in shades of blue , sometimes with a strong contrast between the top and the bottom of the flower. There are white forms. Some of the yellow ones are scented. All are excellent in pots where they mix well with tulips and anemone blanda. Some varieties can be grown indoors but are best if they are first rooted outside. Most are trouble free increasing freely in any dry soil. The most vigorous varieties are useful for growing round the base of a tree or they can even be naturalised with daffodils in grass . The bulbs are planted in the autumn 4" deep and 3" apart in any reasonable soil in sun.
