The Muscari is 'the' finest bulb plant you can put in your garden. It beats the tulip and crocus easily, because it's a sturdy plant and blooms each spring without fail. Requires little maintenance and once the blooming period is over you can cut them just like grass with no ill-effects. It's also a plant that multiplies incrementally each year, so don't be surprised that after 5 years or so you have double of what you planted. Muscari is a member of the Hyacinth family, yet much stronger. Insects, like bees, also love the plant. Blooms for about 2-3 weeks each year in the spring. If you're seriously looking for bulbous plants in your garden I highly recommend this one as it is, in my experience, the best one you can get.
