Muscari, also known as Grape Hyacinth, is a lovely, low maintenance bulb that needs little encouragement to thrive. The fragrant, dainty, grape-like flowers will attract bees and other pollinators to the garden. Siberian Tiger has gorgeous pure white flowers which are complemented by the bright green foliage. These little beauties will naturalise easily. The bulbs can be planted in the autumn to spread a carpet of snow around your garden in April and May. They can be grown in large groups, in lawns or flower borders, for a spectacular display, but are also ideal for growing in containers.
Ideal for garden fragrance.

Muscari are tolerant of any well drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Ideal for naturalising (leaving in for flowers year after year) in borders, rockeries, woodland and between shrubs and paving stones. Good for mass planting. Also suitable for containers. Muscari are naturally clump forming and every 3 or 4 years will require lifting after the foliage has died down, dividing and replanting. Muscari flower for a long time so are excellent when planted with other bulbs. Especially good when grown amongst daffodils.
