About Armeniacum - Grape Hyacinth Bulbs (Muscari)

Muscari armeniacum

Seed Type Bulb
Plant Type Muscari

Beautiful blues!! Armeniacum grape hyacinths are delicate and small—growing just 8 or 9 inches tall—but what they lack in size they more than make up for with their gorgeous, bell-shaped flower clusters. (Do you remember Astropops?) Their size makes them perfect for borders or container arrangements. Plant them in a spot where you can get a whiff of their incredible aroma. They look great in combination with pretty much any other flower. They'll bloom for 2 to 3 weeks, and they do naturalize, but their flowers may get smaller over time. Hyacinths are so easy to grow, and they're deer- and rabbit-resistant!
