Marvelous Muscari


A couple of years ago I saw little deep bluish/purple flowers growing in a town on the other side of Massachusetts.



The totally stunning blooms just grabbed my attention.

I found out they were called "muscari" or purple hyacinths.


Now muscari are not the kind of hyacinths found around Easter time, the highly fragrant kind of flower.

These are different hyacinths. They are small, cone-shaped flowers.


Anyway, I planted them in the front yard circle and just left them there throughout the winter.


The muscari survive winter well.

Last year they multiplied and this year, voila!  


There are even more muscari than ever.

They are so pretty and every time I look at them, they make me happy. 

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF MUSCARI?

Susan, they are so pretty. I love these and never knew their name. Will they continue to multiply like Sedum does?

I've heard of hyacinths before, and these are lovely planted in your flower bed. It must have been a pleasant surprise to see them sprouting this Spring. Such a striking color.

Happy Mother's Day to my dear blog friend.
