Now all the brilliance from the small grape hyacinth can be planted anywhere with these giants that grow from 10 to 12" tall. A group of them is a dazzler!

About Grape Hyacinths This small but very important bulb is the landscaper's dream. Every really good bulb display includes them. It's because planted close together, these little jewels create a true carpet of deep vivid blue, and are the perfect foreground contrast for almost any larger bulbs. A river of Grape Hyacinths in front of a bed of golden daffodils or red tulips makes the display twice as dramatic. Curving beds of these blue beauties are a mainstay of the famous gardens in Holland and here in our own public parks. You can easily do the same thing at home. Just plant in the Grape Hyacinths! They never disappoint.

        These little bulbs are twice the size of the normal ones, and the size of the flowers and plants show that. Much shower, and larger too see.

        from Hannibal Missouri

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Colorful
        • Large
        • stand-out

        Cons

        • Weaker strain

        Best Uses

        • Border

        Comments about American Meadows Giant Grape Hyacinth Bulbs:

        These hyacinths are large enough to make an impact with few bulbs. Color and size were nice, but it seemed the bulbs were not as aggressive as the usual grape hyacinths. I expect them to be more impressive next spring.

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
