An excellent new variety in a delicate shade of powdery blue that complements its neighbors. The tightly clustered heads of tiny bells are deftly tipped with white, and the florets at the base become violet blue as they mature.
Grape Hyacinths are handy, hardy, vigorous little spring bloomers that should, like Crocuses, be staples in every garden. They thrive in full sun or deciduous shade, tolerate practically any soil, and seem to live forever. They are ideal companions for taller bulbs or flowering shrubs and look marvelous in loose sweeps all by themselves. For information on the care of Grape Hyacinths, click "Growing Guide."
