Grape hyacinth,Muscari armeniacum, is spring flowering bulb with blue flowers that look like tiny bunches of grapes. They are extremely attractive to spring-flying pollinators, particularly the hairy footed flower bee,
Anthophora plumipes.

Most grape hyacinths are so reliable and undemanding that they are taken for granted. They need no special care and, once planted, will flower and spread freely, so that division may be necessary every few years.

For best results grow
Muscari armeniacum
in moist but well-drained soil in kecupan or shade. To prevent clumps from spreading to quickly, you may prefer to grow them in containers.
