These are the grape hyacinths that you remember from when you were a kid and picked the neighbor's flowers - oops. Grown for hundreds of years throughout the Mediterranean region, Europe and North America, armeniacum naturalizes with bulb offsets and with seeds, happily popping up in unexpected places. Lightly fragrant, charming and perfect for that bud vase that never gets out of the cupboard.
Ridiculously easy, dependable and inexpensive, these little blue beauties belong in beds, borders, rock garden, along paths and tucked near spring flowering shrubs. Add a few this fall and you'll see what we mean come spring.
This is a Leafari staff tested and recommended variety.
