Grape Hyacinth

This pretty bi-coloured clump forming bulb will gradually spread to form a stunning carpet of flowers.

Grape hyacinths (Muscari) are a wonderful, hardy spring flowering bulb, with grass-like foliage, producing beautiful spikes of flowers that are berry or grape like and give the plant its common name. 'Touch of Snow' is a stunning bi-coloured variety with blooms that are blue with a white margin at the base, fading to pale blue, almost white at the tip. Originally from mountainous areas Muscari thrive in an open and sunny position where they are easy to grow and will readily multiply creating a carpet effect. Providing early nectar for pollinating insects such as bees, moths and butterflies these high impact flowers also have ornamental seed heads extending their season of interest as far as June. Great grown in pots as well as in borders and rock gardens, these charming flowers combine well with yellow spring pansies or daffodils to create a contrasting colourful display.

Easy to grow and great for adding colour to spring borders and pots.

Plant Care & Advice

Muscari armeniacum (Grape Hyacinth) prefers moderately fertile moist but well-drained soil and it will grow best in full sun or partial shade. It is a very vigorous grower with leaves appearing before flowers, bulbs can become to congested as plants multiply and so it is best to lift and divide congested clumps to reinvigorate the plants. Either remove the pot and plant into well prepared soil by digging a hole twice the size of the pot, or simply plunge the pot into a border or larger container and remove it once the flowers have been enjoyed. Plant bulbs 10cm apart and 10cm deep in late summer and autumn adding organic matter to soils if needed.  Muscari grow well in pots and containers, ensure the compost is well drained as the bulbs do not like to be water logged. Feeding is not required as this is likely to result in more leaf growth at the expense of flowers.  In pots divide plants after flowering to increase stock and retain vigour.
