Buy Bellevalia pycnantha grape hyacinth (syn. Muscari paradoxa): Exquisite blue flowers for the early spring garden

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 5+

    In early spring, upright spikes appear amongst the slender grey-green foliage, each topped with a cone-shaped cluster of tightly packed, blue buds. These open from the base of the spike to tiny bell-shaped flowers, and each of these has a fine, creamy yellow lip. A gorgeous addition to a naturalised setting, they do also well in pots, alpine beds or sunny borders.

  • Garden care: Plant 10cm (4in) deep in naturalistic groups in autumn. During summer when the bulbs are dormant lift and divide groups that are becoming congested.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
