This delightful mix of Foxy Foxtrot Tulips and Muscari latifolium is just what the spring garden needs to get going. The lovely colours of both blooms offer a casual look but will have you pulling in closer to see the beauty in each bloom.
When they say double they mean it! In fact, these beautiful tulips have twice the amount of petals and look more like a peony than a tulip. When planted in large groups they provide a spectacular blanket of colour. So be sure to put them in a prominent spot at the front of perennial borders or in containers placed strategically to pull focus. Some are fragrant and all make wonderful, long lasting cut flowers so snip away and enjoy some inside or share them with friends!
Unlike other Muscari whose foliage is slender, Muscari latifolium has broad, tulip-like foliage. Commonly known as Grape Hyacinth, Muscari provide a wealth of blooms and are very easy to grow. Short spikes of blooms appear very early in the spring and their grass like leaves will appear in the fall. Try planting them in rock gardens, along borders, under trees or naturalized in short grass. For shorter flower bouquet arrangements, try adding a few Muscari: not only are they delightfully sweet smelling but they provide a nice accent to your traditional spring bouquet.
