Just like servings of sweet cotton candy at the local fair, the Festival Muscari Blend features appealing pastel bloom stalks atop straight stems. This collection contains a mixture of pink, white, light blue, and dark blue blooms, all that emit that heavenly sweet fragrance for which Muscari are so famous. They bloom in spring, making fine companions to your other bulbs.

Muscari bloom with the Daffodils, their deliciously fragrant spires thriving in both sun and partial shade. They naturalize rapidly in gardens, meadows, and woodland areas and are excellent in rock gardens. They also make gorgeous cutflowers and can be used for indoor forcing -- they truly are all-around wonderful flowers!

Just 6 to 8 inches high, they are ideal beneath trees and shrubs as well as among larger spring-blooming bulbs, although they look fantastic in loose sweeps all by themselves as well. Plus, they are deer resistant and drought tolerant. Handy, hardy, and vigorous, they tolerate practically any soil (except wet, swampy areas), and seem to live forever! These bulbs are so winter hardy and easy to grow, no garden should be without them!

Plant bulbs two inches apart for the fullest display. Keep the soil moist during the spring growing season, but reduce the amount of water provided after the foliage dies back. The bulbs are dormant during the summer, but they will send up grass-like leaves in the fall, which is perfectly normal. Don't cut or mow it until it gets browned by the frost. Zones 3-9.
