Grape Hyacinth ‘Night Eyes’ (Muscari Armeniacum) produces grape-like clusters of rounded, white capped, deep violet-blue florets. These stunning clusters emerge in April on the end of flower stalks that are 18cm/7″ high.
These stunning bulbs are perfect for planting at the front of beds and borders or in patio pots, larger containers, raised beds or rock gardens. They are also great for naturalising in grass, or at the edge of a wooded garden area, returning every year in ever-greater numbers. They also combine well with low-growing tulips and bedding daisies or with brighter shades such as daffodils.
Muscari are tolerant of any well drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Plant these bulbs around 5cm deep and 10cm apart to allow space for the flowers to spread. During summer when the bulbs are dormant lift and divide groups that are becoming congested.
