Grape Hyacinth (Muscari armeniacum) - Plant of the Month - March


I snapped this photo a few days ago. The buttercups had just begun to show a little color and I saw these blooming near by. Grape Hyacinths are one of the first bulbs to bloom in spring and they last quite a while. I have lots of them lining my sidewalk and the front edges of my front yard flower gardens. Their grass-like foliage lasts a long time and does not get messy like buttercups.

Plant these little bulbs in the fall and they will pop up every spring. They are easy to divide and add to other areas in your garden. Grape Hyacinth multiply profusely but are not invasive due to the diminutive size.
