Muscari is commonly known as grape hyacinths. The muscari is a family member of the Hyacinthus. The small grapes form tight clusters of flat little bells with a grape juice fragrance. Muscari bloom in mid-spring, at the same time as tulips. Muscari remains low, they grow up to only 6-8” (15-20 cm), which makes muscari easy to plant in any garden or landscape area. Add muscari to your spring border and enjoy colors from bright blue to pure white. The muscari is a sun-loving garden plant that loves a well-drained soil: order muscari and other spring flower bulbs online in our webshop.
How to grow Muscari
In our webshop, we sell different kinds of Muscari, from small flower bulbs to larger flower bulbs, and from bright blue to pure white. Plant the bulbs in fall in good soil that is well-drained and never soggy. Otherwise, you create root rot. Add peat moss or compost to help improve drainage. Plant different styles of muscari in clusters next to each other to create an attractive site of muscari flowers. Muscari is ideal for planting in the front of flower beds and borders. Muscari also grows well in rock gardens. Plant Muscari bulbs 3-4” (8-10 cm) deep and 2-3” (5-7 cm) apart with the pointed end up. After planting, water thoroughly without soaking the soil. For the best visual effect, plant loads of Muscari flower bulbs together.
