Buy Muscari macrocarpum 'Golden Fragrance' (PBR) grape hyacinth bulbs: A highly scented golden-flowered form

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil (for container-grown bulbs use two parts John Innes No.2 compost to one part sharp grit)
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A delightful and unusual variant on the commonly seen blue forms, this yellow grape hyacinth is very free flowering and has a delicious scent. The buds first emerge from amongst the grey-green foliage a dusky purple, but take on yellow shades as the flowers open fully. Not as vigorous (some would say invasive) as the other grape hyacinths, but well worth finding a spot in the garden for, because of their long-lasting, uniquely coloured blooms, which smell like gardenias.

  • Garden care: Plant 10cm (4in) deep in naturalistic groups in autumn. During summer when the bulbs are dormant cut right back on the watering and allow the compost to get quite dry. Lift and divide clumps that are becoming congested in autumn.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
