They are spectacular when allowed to naturalize under trees or along walkways.

The name muscari derives its name from the word musk, named for it’s slight fragrance although macrocarpum has one of the strongest fragrances of the species.

Cultivation instructions

Before planting your bulbs cultivate soils to a depth of 20 to 30cms and plant bulbs 15cms deep and 10-15cms apart. In heavier soils add grit and or humus matter to help with drainage.  Muscari can be left to naturalise and as such can be left undisturbed for many years. Feed during the flowering and leaf stage with something like bone meal, well rotted compost or similar.

Protect early growth in the spring from slugs and snails and remove dead heads after flowering to prolong flowering period.
