Muscari ambrosiacum

Also known as Muscarimi ambrosiacum, the Musk Hyacinth dates back to 1554 in the area of Turkey and the Greek islands. A scented two-toned beauty, it yields unusual flowering racemes of loosely packed, bead-like yellow-ivory florets with amber edges that morph into pale lavender-purple florets toward the top of each raceme. The name Muscari derives from the work musk, due to its slight fragrance. Deer- and rodent-resistant Muscari naturalize readily in well-draining soil and in full to partial sunlight. You’ll need about nine bulbs per square foot. Not not quite as hardy as other Muscari, M. ambrosiacum would benefit from a 2 inch layer of mulch after the surface of the ground freezes to protect it from temperature spiking. Bulb size: 8 cm/up. Full to partial sunlight. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: April/May. Plant 5" deep and 3" to 4" apart. HZ: 5-8. Height: 6" (or a little taller).

Muscari are The Art & Soul of Spring.
