Get ready for the unexpected! The Comosum Grape Hyacinth (Muscari 'Comosum') starts out looking like a typical Grape Hyacinth, including the wonderful smell! But These beauties have dramatically dark pure-purple bell-shaped blooms along the entire little stem, and a showy shower of bells shooting off the top like a fragrant explosion!

These demure little blooms may only grow about a foot or under while in bloom, but their bunching and naturalizing nature and spikey short slender green foliage look great long after the spring display unmatched by any other Muscari variety.

This brings unique delight in the spring and food for pollinators! Comosum Grape Hyacinths are cold and heat-hardy throughout USDA growing zones 5 to 9, forming tidy little bunches that expand each year, these perennial bulbs are incredibly easy to grow and very low maintenance!

Planting and Application:

Comosum Grape Hyacinth is a great choice for almost any low-lying purpose. From covering up the water meter hatch to adding one more front layer of color to your spring garden, these flowers are happy to oblige. An absolute must for Rock gardens, Cottage gardens and spring ephemeral borders! They look amazing planted in groups and among other Muscari varieties. They spread and fill in, so give them about 4 inches between bulbs to do so.

They add delicate delight to floral arrangements or container gardens, and they have a pleasant scent. Create incredible container gardens with these vertical thrillers, even a window box or planter will become fanciful with these additions! Any sunny patio planter, balcony, or terrace garden becomes something spectacular! Plant them in your lawn for spring color with Crocus or Squills and mow after the flowers fade. Indoors, you can force these lovely bulbs in a shallow dish or container for winter décor!

  • Stunning Fragrant Clusters of Pure Purple Flowers
  • Spring Blooms & Green Foliage Clumps
  • Easy to Grow Naturalizing Perennial Bulbs
  • Pollinator-Friendly & Amazing Cut Flowers
  • Great in Containers, Front of the Border, Spring Color & En Masse

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Muscaris are easy to grow! They like early spring rains and water when the skies don't open up. While these bloom best in full sun, planting them under trees can be a great idea as the bulbs will bloom before the trees leaf out. Then, once the blooming is done, the shade of the trees can protect the bulb's foliage, giving the bulb more energy for next year's stunning blossoms! Fall-planted bulbs need well-drained soil with moderate moisture needs. Any soil type is suitable so long as it is not soggy and add bulb fertilizer to each hole for best results. Their blooms last for weeks and they naturalize and spread over time unless you deadhead after the flowers fade.

  • Full Sun For Strongest Growth
  • Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Deadhead After Flowers Fade & Prune Mounds After Leaves Yellow
  • Deer Seldom Bother Them
