Description

From clumps of thin fleshy leaves arise bell-shaped crowns of purplish blue, sometimes almost black, flowers. The flower heads appear two-toned due to paler crowns, which are the sterile flowers. Grape hyacinth is good for naturalizing in gardens or lawns, for forcing or growing in container displays, and for rock gardens and although it will produce seedlings, it does so in a restrained manner, never exceeding its welcome.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
