Muscari paradoxum

Also known as Bellevalia pycnantha, this 1884 heirloom yields conical racemes of densely compacted, pale to deep blue florets with a greenish-yellow hue above ample foliage clumps. Not as hardy as other Muscari, it would benefit from a 2" layer of mulch after the surface of the ground freezes for protection from winter temperature spikes. Bulb size: 6 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: 7" to 8".
