have mine planted with Grape Hyacinths, and the contrast between the deep purple of these with the bright green leaves with cream margins, looks fantastic together.
This is a close-up of the Grape Hyacinth, Muscari armeniacum. Notice the pale lavender/white ring around the rim? There is also a light green stripe that runs down the center vein of the leaf. These little bulbs are also pretty tough.They only grow about 6" to 8" tall for me.They are hardy from zone 4-8b. Seeds are easily collected when dried. They also spread, but usually are almost done blooming before the yard needs mowed. They are a very nice spring flower and look fantastic among other spring bloomers. I especially like them among my Snow On The Mountain.
