MUSCARI

Native to the Mediterranean and southwestern Asia. Clumps of grassy, fleshy leaves appear in fall and live through cold and snow. Spikes of small, typically urn-shaped blue or white flowers (fragrant, in some species) bloom in early spring.

Plant in early fall, setting bulbs about 2 in. deep and 3 in. apart in well-drained soil. Plant in masses or drifts under deciduous flowering trees or shrubs; use in edgings and rock gardens; grow in containers.Very long lived. Dig and divide when clumps become crowded.
