Muscari comosum plumosum

Circa 1612, the extremely unusual Feather Hyacinth yields plume-like flowering racemes of fine, feathery, thread-like, reddish-violet tepals above rather sparse foliage. Not resembling any other Muscari on the planet, it is most definitely a conversation piece. Commonly referred to as Grape Hyacinths, 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. They make good cut flowers too. Bulb size: 8 cm/up. Full to partial sunlight. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: Late May. Plant 5" deep and 3" to 4" apart. HZ: 4-8. Height: 10".
