    15 × Muscari '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 × Muscari 'Ocean Magic'
    Densely crowded on the upright slowerspike, the green buds open to reveal small, soft blue scented flowers, each with a puckered white mouth. A well-behaved addition to a naturalised setting, it also looks wonderful when used in pots (including windowboxes). Grows to 15cm tall.

    50 × 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
