Muscari azureum is native to Turkey. It grows 4 – 8 inches tall and blooms in March - April with blue flowers in a conical raceme that resembles an upside down bunch of grapes, hence the common name of Grape Hyacinth. Each flower is bell shaped with an unconstricted mouth. Most of the flowers are fertile, but the smaller, paler flowers are sterile. Plant it in full sun to part shade. It is resistant to deer and hardy in zones 4 – 9.
