Flower Friday: Muscari

Posted on March 27th, by Life in Bloom in blog, Uncategorized. No Comments

Happy Friday!  Today we are dishing about one of our favorite little bulb flowers, Muscari, also known as Grape Hyacinth for their tiny urn-shaped flowers that resemble bunches of grapes!  I love this finely textured flower in both the landscape and for its use in floral design.

In the landscape Muscari blooms in early Spring.  You can also expect to find it as a cut flower during this time.  They look stunning and create a great effect when massed in the landscape, such as lining a driveway or naturalizing through the beds.

I love using Muscari in fresh floral arrangements as a little accent flower and for a pop of color.  There aren’t many blue-hued flowers out there either, and this is one of our favorites.  It also looks so adorable as an accent in a boutonniere.  Enjoy the images below!

Have a great weekend!  If you are looking for something fun to do this weekend in Chicago may I suggest Macy’s Art in Bloom Show which is happening this weekend and goes through next Saturday, April 4th.  Check it out if you are in the area!
