Grape hyacinths, also called Muscari (which interestingly means bulb in Turkish), are not at all related to the larger hyacinths, they're actually in the lily family. They make a wonderful early spring container garden plant. They have a sweet, subtle scent and long-lasting, beautiful blue-purple flowers that look like inverted bunches of grapes.
Grape hyacinths like full to partial sun and rich, well-drained soil. You can force grape hyacinths bulbs to grow after cooling them for 8-10 weeks and then planting them in baskets, boxes, or pots.
You can also buy blooming grape hyacinths in the spring and re-pot them in a wooden box or other small container.
Try surrounding your grape hyacinths with grass. You can also make a mixed container by combining spring blooming flowers like daffodils, tulips and/or large hyacinths.
