    A very pretty grape hyacinth, which produces slender white flowerspikes in spring. Less vigorous (or invasive) than its more commonly grown cousin (M. armeniacum), it provides an altogether 'finer' profile. It is perfect for pots, alpine beds or filling gaps at the front of sunny borders.

  • 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
