Grape hyacinth


The flowers of the native Grape hyacinth are dark blue, becoming darker and more black as they age. Therefore they are more striking than the Garden grape hyacinth which is more commonly seen. They prefer a well drained site, but not too dry.
Grape hyacinths are great to plant under shrubs, in a cottage garden or border. They can spread quickly, so planning where they are placed is important to consider. However, another alternative is to plant in containers or pots.
After flowering and once the foliage fades, the leaves can be removed, to allow other bulbs or perennials to appear.

The Grape hyacinth is great to add some early colour to a border and looks super with other Spring bulbs such as Wild daffodils
