Blue and White Muscari

I love the little Muscari that are blooming in my garden. I have many of the blue variety and a few of the white. They are one of my favourite spring flowers.

They are grown from bulbs which are planted in the fall. Once planted, however, they tend to multiply rapidly in good soil and come back up each spring.

Family: Hyacinthaceae. Genus: Muscari.
Common name: Grape Hyacinth

  1. I have that one, the grape hyacinth. The blue one. I had very many at one time. They disappeared I think because they were crowded by our vegetable plants.
    But I still have one nice big bundle this year.
