Overview
Julia Grape Hyacinth reminds us of sunny skies to come with sweetly scented, warm blue flowers tipped in white like a brush from a cloud. Fragrant and a pollinator favorite, Julia is the perfect addition to the garden where the light, cool color will harmonize with other spring flowers. Planted as a river or drift of color, they can light up an area like a soft carpet of blue. (Muscari)

Description

8-10" tall x 2-3' wide. Julia Grape Hyacinth makes an entry to the mid-spring garden with warm sky blue flowers dipped in white. At 8-10" tall, this lovely Grape Hyacinth will naturalize well and harmonize with other Muscari beautifully. Perfect for a rock garden or border, or mixed in with daffodils, hyacinth, and other spring bulbs. Called Grape Hyacinth in tribute to the small grape-like florets that make up the flowers, each grape, or urn, is full of a musky sweet scent that repels browsing deer, rabbits, and squirrels, while attracting bees and other pollinators. Plant Julia in groups of at least 25 for best effect. Easy-care, requiring well-drained soil in a sun to part shade location. Plant them 3" deep and 2-3" apart, and water well. Grass-like foliage will appear, in fall or early spring, and often dies back before the plant flowers. Plant up a container of them for a lovely spring treat - they make lovely cut flowers too.
