Common grape hyacinth

Muscari neglectum

Grape flower, Grape hyacinth, Starch hyacinth

Bulbous, deciduous perennial that produces blue-black spring blooming flowers with lighter, sometimes white rims, growing to an average height of 30cm. Foliage is narrow and arching and 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 pale to mid-blue in colour, tending towards a darker purple to blue-black colour on the bottom flowers.
