Grape Hyacinth or muscari is a mid-spring, blooming, perennial bulb in the lily family, native to southeastern Europe. Muscari comes from the Greek word for musk, referring to the scent. The common name comes from the resemblance of the clusters of small, bell-shaped, cobalt blue flowers to upside down clusters of grapes. I have these all over my little garden in Spring, but I can’t say I smell any musk!
