Muscari, the Grape Hyacinth, is an early flowering bulb with small flower spikes that resemble clusters of grapes on a stick. With over 40 species divided into four subgenera. The Botryanthus group includes most of the classic blue & purple species like M. armeniacum. These have dense flower spikes with a fruity, grape-like fragrance. The Pseudomuscari subgenera like M. azurum produce similar compact smaller flower spikes in bright, pale, and soft blue shades as well as white cultivars. The subgenera Leopoldia often bloom later with a tuft of sterile flowers at their top. They and the uncommon alpine Muscarimia are larger and taller with flowers in shades of brown, green, gold, yellow and white.
