Muscari comosum ‘Plumosum’
The feather hyacinth was first cultivated nearly 400 years ago. That it is still being grown is testament to its enduring beauty. Instead of the flowers being bell shaped as in all the other Grape Hyacinths the flowers have morphed into a plume of lilac-blue threads some 20cm tall. Feathery tassels take the place of the usual urn shaped grape hyacinth flowers. As easily grown as the rest of its race and happy in sun or light shade. A spacing of 20 to 30cm would suit. The flowers are produced on 20cm tall stems during early spring. Any spot that is sunny during the spring growth period will do.
