Muscari latifolium (Grape Hyacinth)

Grape Hyacinth, Broad-leaved Grape Hyacinth, Spring Bulbs, Spring Flowers


This is a gorgeous species which is gaining increasing popularity. Its flower cluster displays two different kinds of flowers. At the top are the sterile, light blue flowers. Below them are the fertile, dark purple-blue flowers. This broad-leafed species creates a lovely color combination all by itself and flowers over a long period.

  • This little bulb is a multiple award-winner: Bulb of the Year in Holland (1996), UK (2006), Germany (2005) and it also won the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society in 2003.
  •  Like most Muscaris, it exudes a lovely fragrance. The more you plant, the more fragrance you get!
  • Blooming for several weeks in early-mid spring, this beauty looks amazing when mixed with any other flowering bulbs.
  • Rising up to 8-10 inches tall (20-25 cm), this Grape Hyacinth will naturalize well.
  • Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun or part shade. Keep the soil moist during the growing season, but reduce watering after foliage begins to die back.
  • This Grape Hyacinth is a welcomed addition to beds, borders, containers, rock gardens, around shrubs or under deciduous trees. Provides spectacular drifts of color when planted en masse. For best visual impact, plant in groups (at least 25 bulbs).
  • Deer and rabbit resistant!
