Invite the Dark Eyes Muscari into your landscape if you dare. This dark and dreamy muscari is alluring, mysterious, and unique. With deep blue florets that pile high atop its strong stalks, this grape hyacinth will attract a lot of attention and excitement.
It's easy to see how the Dark Eyes Muscari earned its name. Each Dark Eyes Muscari plant produces one to three stalks of round and graphic blooms. As its buds slowly turn into blooms, they open to reveal bright white rims that pucker around its 'dark eyes.' This stunning show is unmatched by any other muscari variety. And as its bells form, these blue beauties often sport a fantastic hat of lighter blue bells that are ready to go. This creates an ever-changing show of deep sapphire blues to light powdery tones.
This plant may be petite but its strength doesn't lie in its height. The Dark Eyes Muscari 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. They add delicate delight to floral arrangements or container gardens, and they have a pleasant scent.
Dark Eyes Muscaris are easy to grow. They spread and fill in, so give them about 4inches between bulbs to do so. 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 bulbs foliage, giving the bulb more energy for next years stunning blossoms!
These long-lasting blooms are a tonal treat. They look amazing planted in groups and among other muscari varieties.
