Muscari-Blue Magic (100 bulbs)
Circa 1871, this scented Turkish native yields slightly conical racemes of densely packed, vivid sky-blue florets. Inspect it closely: the top hat of its fertile florets is sky-blue with sterile, bead-shaped, darker sky-blue florets in the middle and slightly open, deep sky-blue florets with white eyes at the base above ample foliage clumps. It has a pale sweet fragrance. Commonly referred to as Grape Hyacinths, deer- and rodent-resistant Muscari naturalize readily in well-draining soil and in full to partial sunlight. They make good cut flowers too. You’ll need about nine bulbs per square foot. Bulb size: 8 cm/up. Full to partial sunlight. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: April/May. Plant 5" deep and 3" to 4" apart. HZ: 4-8. Height: 6" to 8".
