masses of bright blue grape-like flowers over thin strappy leaves
Muscari armeniacum BLUE
- bulbous perennial
- grass-like, mid-green leaves
- cone-shaped flower spikes
- tiny, mid-blue flowers
full sun to part shade
Notes: yes they look impressive in swathes but delightful in small terracotta pots as I grow them. After flowering, I put pots in dry shade and wait for next year!
Info: Muscari, comes from the Greek word for musk, referring to the scent produced by these flowers
Wildlife value: attractive to spring-flying pollinators, particularly the hairy footed flower bee, Anthophora plumipes
