Description

Conical, sky-blue flower heads, like dainty fairy parasols, twinkle like sapphires atop upright stems of just 15cm tall. Each tiny bell-shaped bloom of Muscari 'Soulmate' is delicately laced with a silvery-white edge to create the prettiest two-tone effect. Grape hyacinths are hardy and fuss-free with a light musky scent and a bright intensity that can’t be ignored. Always reliable, Muscari 'Soulmate' will multiply year on year and to form generous clumps that lure bees and other insects to the garden with the promise of early nectar. 

Muscari 'Soulmate' is best crowded between golden Narcissus and dazzling Tulips to create a blanket of eye-popping groundcover. Plant these pocket-sized beauties in patio pots and raised beds for an up-close experience or let them weave a ribbon of colour through the front of borders. These springtime favourites flourish on well-drained soil in almost any position, even beneath an umbrella of deciduous trees.
