Tassel Grape Hyacinth (Leopoldia comosa, Syn. Muscari comosum) potted plant, organic
Family: Asparagus (Asparagaceaea)
Hardy to Zones: 4 to 9
Perennial bulbous plant native to the Mediterranean basin, flowering violet from 6 inches to a foot tall. The flowers are as bright as neon, occurring in weird, upright tufts. Deer and rodent resistant, very showy, quite rare in the trade. Traditional uses (Roman, Greek): bulbs boiled in 2 changes of water, then pickled and preserved in olive oil, considered a delicacy. Plant prefers part to full sun and fast-draining soils of rockery or disturbed areas. Space plants 6 inches apart. These will eventually spread and naturalize.
