    Muscari latifolium is not nearly as popular as the common grape hyacinth, M. neglectum, but it adds interest to an early-spring display.

  • Bicolor Grape Hyacinth

    Muscari latifolium is much less often encountered than the common Muscari neglectum. You can recognize latifolium by its broad leaves (thus the name) and the tendency of the flowers to darken as they age, creating an attractive bicolor flower spike.
