Muscari Touch of Snow, also known as grape hyacinth, is a perennial bulb plant that blooms in the spring. It has beautiful blue flowers with white tips at the tip of the spike. It has strappy foliage as most bulbs do, and can grow up to 15 cm tall. In the spring, their dense flower spikes have a sweet fragrance. It's a hardy bulb that blooms in mid-spring, at the same time as daffodils and tulips. Once planted, the bulbs multiply and return to bloom again year after year.
Grape hyacinth makes an outstanding border plant and is fantastic for naturalizing. For the best visual effect, plant in groups. It's also attrdraft under deciduous shrubs because the flowering period comes when the shrubs are still bare.
Muscari is classified as low in toxicity, but mild poisoning is possible. Consumption in large quantities is strongly discouraged. The flowers also contain vitamin A, which is known to provide immune boosting properties and support normal vision and skin health.
To care for Muscari after it blooms, you can deadhead it by cutting off the heads and leaving the leaves and stems for six weeks. This will fill up the bulb with energy for the next year. Such a little cutie! 3 bulbs to a 1 litre pot, grown to ensure viability and for your convenience.
