Pearls of Spain. The florets look like perfect, pure white pearls, tightly packed into narrow flower spikes. A pristine beauty with a refined bearing and smaller blooms. Heirloom, 1596.
Muscari are handy, hardy, vigorous little spring bloomers that should, like Crocus, 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 as companions for taller bulbs or flowering shrubs, and look marvelous set out in loose sweeps all by themselves. They also force perfectly, given 8-10 weeks of cool rooting time.
