Muscari armeniacum Helena

This beautiful M. armeniacum sport, discovered in 1999 by Jan van Bentum, has tightly compacted, deep violet-blue florets with white mouths that open from the bottom up. The bead-like florets pale to lavender-blue, pale blue and finally to a tuft of bright white florets at the very tip of each flowering raceme. The name Muscari derives from the work musk, due to its slight fragrance. Deer- and rodent-resistant Muscari naturalize readily in well-draining soil and in full to partial sunlight. They make good cut flowers too. You’ll need about nine bulbs per square foot. Bulb size: 9/10 cm. Full to partial sunlight. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: April/May. Plant 5" deep and 3" to 4" apart. HZ: 4-8. Height: 8" (or a little taller).

Muscari are The Art & Soul of Spring.
