  • Information
  • Muscari
    Commonly known as Blue Grape Hyacinths for their form and sweet, grapey fragrance, deer- and rodent-resistant Muscari naturalize well with a succession of composite flowering stems. They are wonderful planted in thick borders along garden beds, in front of, or under, Narcissi and in rivers meandering through dappled woodlands. 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. They make good cut flowers too. You’ll need about nine bulbs per square foot. Muscari also force well. It is common for Muscari to grow foliage in the fall: just ignore it and do not mulch until the ground surface freezes. Top size bulbs. Height: 4" to 12" depending on the variety. Bloom time: variable, April through May depending on the variety. Plant 5" deep and 3" to 4" apart. Horticultural zones 4-8.
