Muscari - Grape Hyacinth

By
Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

March 19, 2011

I am enjoying the Muscari, also known as the Grape Hyacinth in my yard in Flower Mound which is located in close proximity to the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

The plant grows well at the foot of Post Oak Trees in the corner of my yard where it gets a lot of shade. I began planting Grape Hyacinth in 1998. They have come up every year, without fail. I do nothing to take care of them and they seem to enjoy their own independence. I feel lucky to have them in my garden because they always signal that Spring is here and it's here to stay.

I love the little bells that cluster like grapes on this bulb plant. The little white edge shows off the delicacy of this nice spring flower. They say the flowers are bright blue, but I see purple! How about you?

You're so lucky to have your flowers so early in the season! The hyacinths are so fragrant - I just love them.

We are just now starting to get some early spring flowers popping up here in Northwest Ohio.  Some daffodils, tulips, and crocuses are starting to sprout up, and of course, the dreaded FSBO sign.

Roger,

You're about two weeks behind me. We had daffodils two weeks ago and the tulips were in full bloom last weekend.

Oh, and with spring comes grass - I NEED to get my grass cut this weekend!

Dreaded FSBO signs??? Get out there and get them tiger! Grrrrr!

Patricia-Looks like purple to me. The hyacinths in NY where I was until 4 yrs ago were slightly different than those. I like those better so maybe they have them here in Va as well.

Patricia - I keep looking for the Spring flowers to no avail. They must be somewhere around. Will have to share yours along with your poetry, for the moment.

Patricia, love the picture....  Our spring flowers are still hiding... I can't wait for them to poke their little buds above the ground.  We reached a high temperature of 69 degrees today.....so it won't be long.

Hi Sharon,

I understand that there are different varieties. I didn't know the grow in NY too! That's cool. If they do grow in VA, I hope you discover them this spring.

Wishing you a lovely spring and thank you!

Rob,

I think it's a beautiful color too. Tulips and Daffodils are nice but this one brings forth something special for me. Thank you and I hope you have a nice day!

Larry,

I pray you get to enjoy the wonders of spring very soon. The season is filled with beauty and to go for so long without flowers has to be rough.

When spring does come your way, I hope it comes in abundance. I'll be looking forwarding to read all about it when it does arrive where you live.

I wish you life's blessings.

Thanks Brenda. It's most frequently called the Grape Hyacinth. It kind of reminds me of a Lily of the Valley because of the bell like clusters.

I appreciate hearing from you and I wish you a beautiful spring.

Vickie,

69 degrees is a lot better than where it has been the last few weeks in CO! Sounds like the ground is warming up for you and that spring is right around the corner.

When it does come, I hope you discover flowers in abundance!

I wish you all the best today and always.

Patricia--You are going to have to support my family.  I have decided to retire and garden.  It is all your fault.  You are now and forever more responsible for my family.  I hope you are happy. :-)

Dear Pat,

It's like this.... if I'm going to have to support your family AND be responsible for them, so that you can retire and garden, then you're just going to have to MOVE from Indy and get your family down here where it's warmer! But, if you do that, I think you're going to have to home school those children while your garden grows!

Thanks for the laugh - I needed that! :-)
