Grape Hyacinth Bulbs (Muscari armeniacum)
An early blooming flower, Grape Hyacinth bulbs provide gardens with bright blue, bell-shaped flowers in grape-like clusters, about 6-8 inches tall. Grape Hyacinths (Muscari armeniacum) are ideal for borders, rock gardens, containers, naturalizing and co-planting with tulips or daffodils. The fragrant Muscari armeniacum flowers attract pollinators, too. If left undisturbed, they multiply rapidly. For the biggest impact, plant Grape Hyacinth bulbs in large groups. These bulbs can also be forced for indoor blooming. Muscari armeniacum bulbs perform best when planted in well-drained soil and in full sun to partial shade. Deer also tend to avoid Grape Hyacinth Flowers.
