Broad-Leaved Grape Hyacinth Overview

Bulbous, deciduous perennial that produces blue-black spring blooming flowers, growing to an average height of between 15-40cm high. Each bulb possesses only 1 to 2 leaves, these are narrow and arching. Flowers are bell-shaped and don't typically exceed a centimetre in length. These are produced on a triangular raceme structure. This is a form of unbranched inflorescence where the oldest flowers are formed at the base and new blooms from the tip as the plant grows. Flowers at the top of the raceme are sterile and pale violet in colour, tending towards a deep blue-black colour on the bottom, fertile flowers.
