Muscari armeniacum 'Fantasy Creation'


By Drc726

Muscari armeniacum 'Fantasy Creation'  (Muscari armeniacum 'Fantasy Creation')

I love these double-flowered grape hyacinths which are a good candidate for beds and borders because they increase only by division. They also bloom longer than those that hasten through spring eager to set seed. 'Fantasy Creation', a sport of 'Blue Spike', has a large pyramidal raceme resembling broccoli. Its blue flowers gradually turn purple, then green, fading toward yellow. It doesn't wilt and rarely sets seed, making it useful for dried flower arrangements.
