    15 x Muscari aucheri 'White Magic'
    From amongst the basal rosette of rich green foliage, pretty green-budded flowerspikes emerge in mid-spring, opening from the base to scented small white flowers. Less vigorous that the M. armeniacum's, it makes a lovely addition to the alpine garden or rockery, and looks great in a pot filled with mixed seasonal colour. Grows to 15cm tall.

    15 x Muscari armeniacum 'Peppermint'
    Small ice-blue flowers, each with a fine white lip, form in conical spikes that rise above the slender foliage in mid-spring. It looks wonderful when allowed to form generous swathes, particularly in a woodland or meadow-style setting, - and it also looks very sweet in patio pots, windowboxes or alpine beds. Grows to 20cm tall.

    50 x Muscari armeniacum
    Charming, cone-shaped spikes of tiny, mid-blue flowers appear in April and May above the grass-like, mid-green leaves. Grape hyacinths look gorgeous peeping out of a large container, planted with yellow, spring-flowering pansies. Quickly forming small colonies, they're also valuable for naturalising at the front of a sunny mixed or shrub border. Grows to 15cm tall.

  • Garden care: Plant 10cm (4in) deep in naturalistic groups in autumn. During summer when the bulbs are dormant lift and divide groups that are becoming congested.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
