Muscari botryoides 'Album', better known as the Grape Hyacinth, produces immensely pretty, snow-white, bell-shaped flowers that cluster in poker-like heads, looking almost like upside-down bunches of grapes.
Resembling a miniature hyacinth, the blooms look stunning against its long, narrow, deep-green leaves when in bloom from April and May.
Free-flowering, vigorous and very easy to grow, Grape Hyacinths will rapidly naturalise and spread by seed, creating a sea of colour in the spring. They are the perfect bulb for inexperienced gardeners, or those short of time who can be guaranteed a fabulous show, whatever their level of experience.
Less vigorous than their blue, more familiar cousins, you can be sure that this proven garden performer is suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience, and you can plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Best in groups in borders or pots, plant them with brightly coloured spring bulbs for a wonderful contrast.
Supplied as a pack of 25 bulbs, size 5/, ready to plant out in autumn. Grows to a height of 15cm and width of 10cm.
